Study of Turn-to-Turn Electrical Breakdown for Superconducting Fault Current Limiter Applications

November 2nd, 2018|

The rational insulation design of a resistive superconducting fault current limiter (r-SCFCL) requires data gathered from experimental setups representative of the final apparatus. Therefore, an experimental study was performed to characterize the electrical breakdown (BD) of liquid nitrogen (LN2) in the peculiar conditions of a quenching superconducting device.

Arc appearance and cathode spot distribution in a long gap high-current vacuum arc controlled by an external axial magnetic field

October 31st, 2018|

An experimental study of a high-current vacuum arc (VA) generated between two static CuCr25 contacts spaced 20 or 30 mm apart was conducted to characterize the arc appearance and the cathode spot (CS) distribution.

Electrical properties of epoxy systems based on ionic liquids

October 12th, 2018|

In accordance with their interesting properties, ionic liquids (ILs) have attracted in the recent years a great interest in the material field. Recently, few authors have demonstrated the reactivity of ionic liquids towards epoxy in order to form new epoxy-based networks...
