Influence of Insulation Gap Geometry on Electric Strength

  • Vasily Y. Ushakov
Part of the Power Systems book series (POWSYS)


Gases, liquids, and solid and hybrid dielectrics in gaps with homogeneous electric fields have the highest breakdown voltages. The breakdown voltage decreases with increasing field inhomogeneity. Insulation gaps with a sharply inhomogeneous asymmetric field, such as tip—plane electrode gap, have the lowest breakdown voltages.
