Chapter 2 Generation of high voltages

A fundamental knowledge about generators and circuits which are in use for the generation of high voltages belongs to the background of work on h.v. technology.

Generally commercially available h.v. generators are applied in routine testing laboratories; they are used for testing equipment such as transformers, bushings, cables, capacitors, switchgear, etc. The tests should confirm the efficiency and reliability of the products and therefore the h.v. testing equipment is required to study the insulation behaviour under all conditions which the apparatus is likely to encounter. The amplitudes and types of the test voltages, which are always higher than the normal or rated voltages of the apparatus under test, ...
