Flashover Characteristics of Long Air Gaps with Negative Switching Impulses

Abstract

The electrogeometric model (EGM) proposed by Armstrong and Whitehead has been used to calculate the lightning shielding features of transmission lines. While the striking distance equation in the EGM uses the 50% flashover voltage characteristics of negative switching impulses for rod-rod gaps, those characteristics for long air gaps have not been… (More)
