    Abstract : High-voltage DC (HVDC) grids are considered promising for the electricity grid expansion required to integrate renewable energy sources into the existing infrastructure. DC fault currents increase rapidly and lack a current zero crossing. READ MORE

  2. 2. Numerical simulations of long spark gaps – lightning attachment and its application

    Author : Liliana Arévalo Gonzalez; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The Licenciate Thesis presented here is a research work on numerical simulations of two different electrical phenomena: Long gap discharges under switching impulses and the lightning attachment process of positive upward leaders. The development of a positive upward leader and the process of progress of a discharge in long gaps are composed of two intertwined physical phenomena, namely the leader channel and the corona zone.

  3. 3. Numerical Simulations of Long Spark and Lightning Attachment

    Author : Liliana Arevalo; Vernon Cooray; Dan Windmar; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; breakdown; discharge; leader channel; lightning attachment; negative discharge; positive discharge; streamer; Electrical engineering; Elektroteknik; Engineering Science with specialization in Atmospheric Discharges; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot atmosfäriska urladdningar;

    Abstract : The research work presented here is concerned with numerical simulations of two different electrical phenomena: Long gap electrical discharges under switching impulses and the lightning attachment process associated with positive upward leaders. The development of positive upward leaders and the progression of discharges in long gaps are attributable to two intertwined physical phenomena, namely, the leader channel and the streamer zone.

  4. 4. Inhibited electrical discharges in air

    Author : Anders Larsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; elektronik; Electronics;

    Abstract : Modem society requires a stable electricity supply, the reliability of which is partlydetermined by the dielectric strength of the outdoor high-voltage insulation systems.This thesis concentrates upon one particular discharge phenomenon that occurs whensuch a system is subjected to rain, namely the inhibited discharge.
