Measurements of temperature dependence of partial discharge in air gaps between insulated Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O tapes


Partial discharge (PD) in trapped air-filled gaps between two adjacent insulated high temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes made of Bi/sub 2/Sr/sub 2/Ca/sub 2/Cu/sub 3/O/sub x/ (BSCCO) was investigated experimentally. PD measurements were performed at several temperatures ranging from 295 K to 41 K. At each temperature a series of AC voltages of equal… (More)
