    The first article in this series [1] covered the early history of electrolytic capacitors, from their invention around 1880 to the invention of the modern Al electrolytic capacitor structure in 1925. The second article [2] takes us from Samuel Ruben's 1925 invention to the wide range of Al electrolytic capacitors presently on the market. The present article discusses electrolytic capacitors based ... View full abstract»

    The detection and measurement of partial discharge (PD) is a well-known method for evaluating the insulation performance of power transformers. According to the IEC 60270 standard, the apparent charge is measured in a frequency range below 1 MHz using an electrical circuit which quantifies only a portion of the discharge energy conducted to the PD detector through the conductors. However, it is al... View full abstract»

    Metal oxide varistors based on ceramic technology are extensively used nowadays as limiting voltage devices, covering an amazing range of systems from microelectronics equipment up to very large power system networks. These varistors are formed through the sintering of a mixture of ZnO or SnO<;sub>2<;/sub> metal oxides with several other metal oxide dopants containing the elements of O... View full abstract»

    Mineral oils have been used in transformers for cooling and insulation for many years. Despite their long-time success, mineral oils are facing critiques by the electrical power industry in terms of thermal performance-mineral oils have relatively low flashpoint and fire point and will burn in the event of a fault [1], [2], [3]; environmental performance-mineral oils are less biodegradable, toxic ...

    High voltage power cables and their accessories are vital components of the electrical power network. Because of this, reliable operation over their lifetime is essential to minimize failures during service. As in-service failures most often incur very high costs, condition monitoring of high voltage cable accessories is becoming increasingly of interest and is being applied. Monitoring of partial...
