For 40 years, the biannual conference ISH (International Symposium on High Voltage Engineering) has permitted to researchers all around the world to meet and share their research in the high voltage field. The 2017 edition took place from August 28 to September 01 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
New high-voltage power electronic converters and facilities for transmission grids tend to have multiple power switches at different floating potentials. Moreover, the trend goes towards the use of power switches with higher operating voltages (up to 10kV), in order to reduce the number of switches by system.
Influence of Electric Field on Space Charge Distribution in Alumina-filled Epoxy Resin for Application in HVDC GIS
The present paper deals with space charge in alumina filled epoxy resin for HVDC applications.
Evolution of the Cathode Spot Distribution in an Axial Magnetic Field Controlled Vacuum Arc at Long Contact Gap
The evolution of the cathode spot distribution is an important aspect of the behavior of vacuum arcs controlled with an axial magnetic field.
The measurement of Partial Discharges (PD) in Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) enables to identify and analyse various types of defects that can result in electrical breakdown.
The density normalized Effective ionization coefficients and critical breakdown electric field of the Heptafluoro-iso-butyronitrile (Fluoronitriles), and Fluoronitriles-CO2 mixture are investigated using the steady state Townsend (SST) experimental setup, over a range of the density normalized critical electric field (E/N) from 200-1066 Td (E is the electric field and N the gas density).
A Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) consists of a high-voltage conductor maintained by spacers placed in a metal enclosure filled with a dielectric gas.
Phenomena of charge accumulation on the insulator surface are of major interest in Gas Insulated Substations (GIS) under Direct Current (DC)...
This paper describes the influence of grounding on voltage and current transients during DC-link fault in a High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) cable system.
