Partial discharge transients: The field theoretical approach

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    Up until the mid-1980s the theory of partial discharge transients was essentially static. This situation had arisen because of the fixation with the concept of void capacitance and the use of circuit theory to address what is in essence a field problem. Pedersen rejected this approach and instead began to apply field theory to the problem of partial discharge transients. In the present paper, the contributions of Pedersen using the field theoretical approach will be reviewed and discussed.
