  • Radio-frequency corona breakdown of the air surrounding a transmitting aerial operating under conditions of reduced pressure occurs for a comparatively low radiated power. In this paper the theory of diffusion-controlled breakdown is discussed and used to deduce the critical field strength for breakdown at the tip of a prolate spheroidal unipole aerial. Two independent methods are used to determine the electric field strength at the tip of the unipole. In one of these the voltage on the coaxial… CONTINUE READING
