    For the quantitative assessment and prediction of insulation discharge properties, one requires knowledge of quite a range of quantities referred to in the title as "discharge coefficients". Their determination may require a variety of techniques, but one always needs a model of the discharge-preferably a simple one. The parameters can be measured in discharges of one form or another, but in order... View full abstract»

    The topic "gas discharge physics" is fundamental to electrical breakdown in gases. Many excellent publications provide detailed accounts. In this article, the authors recall contributions drawn from research conducted at the University of Strathclyde (UK) under the direction of David J. Tedford. From the late 1950s onwards, these programmes generated numerous international meetings, research colla... View full abstract»

  • The long spark and lightning simulation

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):4/1 - 4/3

    The author details how lightning models fall into three categories: pure geometrical constructions such as cones of protection and the rolling spheres which were introduced to British Standards in 1985; electrogeometric models, in which empirical relationships for striking distance and lightning peak current are invoked; and physical analogues, where the discharge mechanisms revealed in laboratory...

  • Partial discharges in solid insulation

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):5/1 - 5/8

    Partial discharges (PD) seem to be somewhat inevitably part of the life of most solid insulating systems for HV plant. If left undiscovered/unchecked they may well result in a significant shortening of that life. Their presence stems from a combination of poor manufacturing techniques, creating voids or inclusions in otherwise homogeneous solid insulation and/or degradation in the insulation throu...

  • Radiation damage to polymeric insulations

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):6/1 - 6/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (261 KB)

    This presentation deals with the influence of ionising radiation on charge transport in polymeric films. A most important aspect of this phenomenon is the development of radiation resistant insulators with good electrical and mechanical properties for use in atomic and fusion power engineering. Other significant reasons for carrying out research on radiation effects in dielectrics are connected wi... View full abstract»
