9780080063836: High Voltage Engineering (Commonwealth Library)

Provides a comprehensive treatment of high voltage engineering fundamentals at the introductory and intermediate levels. It covers: techniques used for generation and measurement of high direct, alternating and surge voltages for general application in industrial testing and selected special examples found in basic research; analytical and numerical calculation of electrostatic fields in simple practical insulation system; basic ionisation and decay processes in gases and breakdown mechanisms of gaseous, liquid and solid dielectrics; partial discharges and modern discharge detectors; and overvoltages and insulation coordination.

Product Description:

Power transfer for large systems depends on high system voltages. The basics of high voltage laboratory techniques and phenomena, together with the principles governing the design of high voltage insulation, are covered in this book for students, utility engineers, designers and operators of high voltage equipment. In this new edition the text has been entirely revised to reflect current practice. Major changes include coverage of the latest instrumentation, the use of electronegative gases such as sulfur hexafluoride, modern diagnostic techniques, and high voltage testing procedures with statistical approaches.

Review:

'This revision of a well respected book is an important contribution to the understanding of high-voltage engineering and every serious worker in this field should ensure that they have access to a copy.' Collin Cooper, Emeritus Proffessor of Electrical Engineering, UMIST. POWER ENGINEERING JOURNAL DECEMBER 2000
