Microshocks are the low current, continuous discharges experienced by people capacitively coupled to high voltage equipment. The situations in which these discharges occur are complicated by the size and complexity of the high voltage equipment and the sensitivity of the person concerned. A simple model has been constructed in the commercial software package CDEGS. This has been used to model a geometrically simple object designed to represent a person adjacent to a high voltage tower. The… CONTINUE READING
