    Project Details

    Description

    From Paschen curve measurements, the insulating characteristics of strongly electronegative gases are evaluated and compared against those of SF6. This has importance in the area of high voltage gas insulated equipment operating at the 400 kV level. The greenhouse effect has also stimulated interest in this area for an alternative gas.
