New Work May Be Key To Avoiding Large-scale Power Outages
2013-09-27 12:40:33

American Institute of Physics Streamers may be great for decorating a child's party, but in dielectrics, they are the primary origin of electric breakdown. They can cause catastrophic damage to electrical equipment, harm the surrounding environment, and lead to large-scale power outages. Understanding streamers and the mechanisms behind their initiation, acceleration and branching is necessary to devise better solutions to avoid them. As recently reported in the Journal of Applied...
