  2. 2. Electrical Charges on Polymeric Insulator Surfaces and their Impact on Withstand Performance

    Author : Sarath Kumara; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; impulse corona; Surface charge; impulse flashover voltage; corona charging; streamer criterion; surface potential decay; charge relaxation;

    Abstract : Use of polymeric materials for high voltage outdoor insulation systems is increasing continuously. Insulating polymers gradually replace traditional materials like porcelain and glass and become dominant at ultra high voltages, e.g., in 1000 kV ac and 800 kV dc overhead power transmissions, which are presently being developed.

  3. 3. The coronal heating problem

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för astronomi

    Author : Boris V. Gudiksen; Göran Scharmer; James Klimchuk; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Solen; Corona; Magneto hydro dynamik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Astronomy and astrophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Astronomi och astrofysik;

    Abstract : The heating of the solar corona has been investigated during four of decades and several mechanisms able to produce heating have been proposed. It has until now not been possible to produce quantitative estimates that would establish any of these heating mechanism as the most important in the solar corona. READ MORE

  4. 4. Loss and recovery of hydrophobicity of polydimethylsiloxane after exposure to electrical discharges

    University dissertation from Institutionen för polymerteknologi

    Author : Henrik Hillborg; [2001]
    Keywords : silicone rubber; polydimethysiloxane; dydrophobicity; corona; air-plasma; oxygen-plasma; surface characterisation;

    Abstract : Silicone rubber based on polydimethylsiloxane is used ashigh voltage outdoor insulation, due to its ability to preservethe hydrophobic surface properties during service and evenregain hydrophobicity after exposure to electrical discharges.The underlying processes for the hydrophobic recovery arediffusion of low molar mass siloxanes from the bulk to thesurface and reorientation by conformational changes ofmolecules in the surface region.

  5. 5. Microwave Breakdown in Inhomogeneous Fields

    University dissertation from Institutionen för polymerteknologi

    Author : Joel Rasch; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; corona; inhomogeneous fields; Microwave breakdown; multipactor;

    Abstract : Microwave breakdown continues to be a risk in many applications involving the transmission and reception of microwave frequency signals. Satellite communication is especially interesting from the research point of view because of the extreme costs, and limited testing possibilities. READ MORE
