Abstract

Areas of Investigation 1. To determine the effect of test cell glass cylinder diameter on gaseous insulation dielectric strength for uniform and non-uniform fields through experimental results and field plots. 2. To obtain an upper limit for gap spacing in different size test cells for uniform and non-uniform fields. 3. To determine the effect of frequent change of gas in cell during test. 4. To determine extraneous effects, such as cell clamps. 5. To suggest the size in which a test cell should be to obtain good results in gaseous insulation dielectric strength tests. These areas will be investigated by the author through the highest attainable accuracy that can be achieved with the precision of the test equipment available.
