    A physically valid theory of partial dischargetransients has been developed using a field theoretical approach. The theory is based upon the concept of the charge induced upon the detecting electrode by the partial discharge. Mathematically this induced charge is composed of a component associated with the actual space charge in the void, and one related to changes in the bulk dielectric polarization brought about by the space charge. In the present paper, the influence of the void geometry upon the changes in the bulk dielectric polarization is examined.
