This book is based on the leading German reference book on high voltage engineering. It includes innovative insulation concepts, new physical knowledge and new insulating materials, emerging techniques for testing, measuring and diagnosis, as well as new fields of application, such as high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission. It provides an excellent access to high voltage engineering – for engineers, experts and scientists, as well as for students. High voltage engineering is not only a key technology for a safe, economic and sustainable electricity supply, which has become one of the most important challenges for modern society. Furthermore, a broad spectrum of industrial applications of high voltage technologies is used in most of the innovative fields of engineering and science. The book comprehensively covers the contents ranging from electrical field stresses and dielectric strengths through dielectrics, materials and technologies to typical insulation systems for AC, DC and impulse stresses. Thereby, the book provides a unique and successful combination of scientific foundations, modern technologies and practical applications, and it is clearly illustrated by many figures, examples and exercises. Therefore, it is an essential tool both for teaching at universities and for the users of high voltage technologies.

This concise textbook is intended for undergraduate students of electrical engineering offering a course in high voltage engineering. Written in an easy-to-understand style, the text, now in its Second Edition, acquaints students with the physical phenomena and technical problems associated with high voltages in power systems. A complete quantitative description of the topics in high voltage engineering is difficult because of the statistical nature of the electrical breakdown phenomena in insulators. With this in mind, this book has been written to provide a basic treatment of high voltage engineering qualitatively and, wherever necessary, quantitatively. Special emphasis has been laid on breakdown mechanisms in gaseous dielectrics as it helps students gain a sound conceptual base for appreciating high voltage problems. The origin and nature of lightning and switching overvoltages occurring in power systems have been explained and illustrated with practical observations. The protection of high voltage insulation against such overvoltages has also been discussed lucidly. The concept of modern digital methods of high voltage testing of insulators, transformers, and cables has been explained. In the Second Edition, a new chapter on electrostatic field estimation and an appendix on partial discharges have been added to update the contents. Solved problems help students develop a critical appreciation of the concepts discussed. End-of-chapter questions enable students to obtain a more in-depth understanding of the key concepts.

Equipment to be installed in electric power-transmission and distribution systems must pass acceptance tests with standardized high-voltage or high-current test impulses which simulate the stress on the insulation caused by external lightning discharges and switching operations in the grid. High impulse voltages and currents are also used in many other fields of science and engineering for various applications. Therefore, precise impulse-measurement techniques are necessary, either to prevent an over- or understressing of the insulation or to guarantee the effectiveness and quality of the application. The target audience primarily comprises engineers and technicians but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students of high-voltage engineering and electrical power supply systems.

The book is written for students as well as for teachers and researchers in the field of High Voltage and Insulation Engineering. It is based on the advance level courses conducted at TU Dresden, Germany and Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India. The book has a novel approach describing the fundamental concept of field dependent behavior of dielectrics subjected to high voltage. There is no other book in the field of high voltage engineering following this new approach in describing the behavior of dielectrics. The contents begin with the description of fundamental terminology in the subject of high voltage engineering. It is followed by the classification of electric fields and the techniques of field estimation. Performance of gaseous, liquid and solid dielectrics under different field conditions is described in the subsequent chapters. Separate chapters on vacuum as insulation and the lightning phenomenon are included.
