Traditionally corona testing has been performed in laboratories by mounting a single phase mock-up of the conductor/hardware/insulator assembly at a given height above the ground and applying 110% of the rated line-to-ground operating voltage. If the test setup is shown to be free of corona by this test, then it is considered that the assembly will be free… CONTINUE READING
