For several years an extensive investigation on the dielectric strength of air, and more particularly, on the law of corona, has been carried on by the Consulting Department of the General Electric Company, under the general supervision of Dr. C. P. Steinmetz. The facilities were practically unlimited in regard to power, apparatus, instruments and their standardization, and available engineering skill. Thanks for their active assistance in this investigation are due to Dr. E. J. Berg, Messrs. C… Expand
The electric strength of air — IV
The investigation of the influence of pressure on corona formation described in the second paper of this series is extended with larger apparatus so as to include a wider range of pressure andExpand

Air at the surface of small wires has an apparently greater strength than air at the surface of large ones. It has been found that the breakdown gradient may be expressed $g_v = g_0\left(1+{k \overExpand
The electric strength of air under continuous potentials and as influenced by temperature
The paper describes a series of experiments on the influence of temperature on corona-forming continuous potentials. The observations have been made on three sizes of wire of diameters 0.0251 cm.,Expand
