Example text

The breakdown voltage Vs is correspondingly reduced on account of the fact that the gradient of the leader is lower than that of streamers. Experiment shows that for further increase in rise time, the trend reverses and the breakdown voltage increases. The reason is that successive streamer coronas develop during the relatively slow rise of voltage, none of which has injected sufficient charge at a sufficiently high stress to cause a leader to form. The resulting positive space charge reduces the local field at the anode so that a larger stress is ultimately needed to form the leader.

The velocity of negative streamers is not known. The negative leader grows towards the anode with a velocity less than 104 ms−1 , which is significantly less than that of the leader in a long positive rod–plane gap. However, the cathode-directed streamer has been shown to have the same velocity as in a positive discharge. 3 Applications The applications discussed here are relevant mainly to high voltage power systems and associated apparatus. Most power systems employ alternating voltages, although direct voltage operation is becoming significant in special situations.

Note the trend for the minima to occur at longer times to peak as the front of the impulse increases where d is the gap length. 4). The existence of the U-curve was first realised about 1960 [41, 42] and it is now widely used in high voltage technology, for instance in determining minimum clearances in high voltage equipment such as overhead lines and in general questions of insulation coordination. 3 The influence of field configurations: the gap factor Discussion so far has assumed the non-uniform field electrode to be of small radius, so that high fields exist in its vicinity, leading to ready formation of corona.
