High Voltage Engineering
- E. Kuffel, University of Manitoba, Canada
- W. S. Zaengl, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule, Zurich, Switzerland
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.
Of interest to senior undergraduate and graduate students of electrical engineering, technical college apprentices amd practising engineers.
