Characteristics of partial discharges (PD) caused by trees in contact with covered conductor (CC) lines have been studied. A tree in contact with a CC distorts the electric field around the conductor and causes partial discharges. According to tests conducted in a high voltage laboratory the rise time of the PD current pulses caused by the trees is… CONTINUE READING
