    The paper gives a survey of the phenomenon `Arc Tracking of Wires' which has been observed for the first time in wiring systems of aircraft and which recently has occurred also in spacecraft. Aircraft organizations are aware of this phenomenon and have tried to provide solutions to cope with this new wire failure, i.e. modification of cable design and manufacture, avoiding pure polyimide insulatio...

    It is suggested that a major field of study in the future development of dielectrics will concern their properties when relatively few molecules are involved. Such smallness arises naturally at interfaces of nanometric thickness and will occur also when dielectrics are employed in the nano-technical devices of the future. It already occurs in living systems where the dielectric and conductive prop... View full abstract»

    Results of recent research on physical and chemical processes in partial discharge (PD) phenomena are reviewed. The terminology used to specify different types or modes of PD are discussed in light of a general theory of electrical discharges. The limitations and assumptions inherent to present theoretical models are examined. The influence of memory propagation effects in controlling the stochast... View full abstract»

    This paper covers the basic phenomena involved in the aging of capacitors constructed using polymer films as the major dielectric material. A wide variety of aging phenomena can be identified, ranging from simple electrical, dielectric, thermal, radiation, chemical and physical aging, to aging originating from the specific construction of the capacitor. Some phenomena occur quickly, such as some m... View full abstract»

  • Capacitor theory

    A new linear capacitor model is proposed. It is based on Curie's empirical law of 1889 which states that the current through a capacitor is i(t)=U0/(h1tn), where h1 and n are constants, U0 is the dc voltage applied at t=0, and 0<n<1. It implies that the insulation resistance is Ri(t)=h1tn, that is, it inc... View full abstract»

    Recently, several new techniques such as LIPP, PIPS, PEA and TP methods have been developed to measure directly the space charge distributions in insulating polymers. Many papers have been published on space charge in insulating materials. In this paper, the space charge measurement techniques and space charge in polyethylene are reviewed. The space charge distributions in polyethylene depend stro... View full abstract»

    The transformation and the degradation of insulating materials interacting with cold plasma discharges have certain common points. This is examined in the present review where the discharge activity is regarded from a physico-chemical point of view. A critical time of interaction seems to be observable in many studies, which defines the line between transformation and degradation. The role played ... View full abstract»

    A broad survey has been conducted of electrohydrodynamic phenomena in which the electric field may be simply static or electrodynamic in nature. Recent developments of new materials have made it possible for relatively high electromagnetic fields to penetrate flow tubes and containers, thus emphasising the need for an electrodynamic approach to the subject. Some engineering problems are introduced... View full abstract»
