High Voltage Engineering
Introduces readers to the major components of a high voltage system and the different insulating materials applied in particular equipments. This book includes analyses of some of the insulation fault scenarios that may occur in power equipment.
534pages. 23x16x3cm. Broché.
This book focuses on developments in experimental methods, theory, modelling and HV technology through the past decade. The coverage includes advances in basic understanding and capability, for instance in earthing, numerical analysis, optical methods, the physics of air breakdown and partial discharge. It also addresses technological developments in key areas such as SF6 insulation systems, polymeric insulators and power cables, ZnO surge arrestors and pulsed power.
This 3rd edition of High Voltage Engineering Testing describes strategic developments in the field and reflects on how they can best be managed. All the key components of high voltage and distribution systems are covered including electric power networks, UHV and HV. Distribution systems including HVDC and power electronic systems are also considered.
