Abstract:

Research is concerned with full-sized units employing a cushion of various gases above the impregnant FC-43 in an attempt to design a network not requiring a volume-compensating bellows. Testing was primarily directed at a solution for the problem of maintaining a high corona starting voltage over the entire operating temperature range of the network. Tests reported in the Sixth Quarterly Report AD251138 were continued in conjunction with tests performed on full-sized units employing volume-compensating bellows. Life testing was continued of small networks using FC-43 liquid impregnant. Data obtained from these tests indicated that final design stress will satisfactorily meet required specifications.
