Description

This book has a novel approach in describing the fundamental concept of field-dependent behavior of dielectrics when subjected to different types of high voltages. The contents begin with a systematic classification of electric fields and the techniques of field estimation. In-depth coverage of performance/behaviour of gaseous, solid and liquid dielectrics has been made in the book. The basics of high voltage laboratory techniques, non-destructive testing, measurement of high test voltages and dielectric properties are also covered in detail in this book.
