Electric Stress Estimation and Control using various techniques.Mechanism of breakdown of gases, liquids and solid insulating materials.Application of insulating materials for different electrical equipments.Generation of high a.c., d.c. and impulse voltages and currents for testing of electrical equipments.Various techniques and circuits for measurements of high voltages.Testing procedures for testing of insulators, cables transformers, circuit breakers etc.High Voltage Schering Bridge and partial discharge measurement techniques for assessing life expectancy of equipments.Insulation coordination and over-voltage protection.A few photo plates to give a physical feel of various equipment in a high voltage laboratory.Large number of solved examples, practice problems and multiple choice questions.ABOUT THE BOOK:The book provides a clear, systematic and exhaustive exposition of various discussions of High Voltage Engineering. Generation of a.c., d.c. and impulse voltage for testing of electrical equipments as per standard specifications have been explained. High voltage testing of some of the electrical equipments e.g. insulators, cables, transformers as per standard specifications has been explained. Various methods of non-destructive testing which yield information regarding life expectancy and long-term stability or otherwise of the insulating materials have been discussed. The book takes a view of various types of transients in power systems and suggests classical and more modern statistical methods of co-ordinating the insulation requirements of the system.
