Abstract:

In the report account is given of the contemporary science of electric strength in liquid dielectrics. Experimental and theoretical data are presented on their breakdown. Processes connected with chlorodiphenyl are considered in a way which is useful for conditions which are encountered in application. Data are also presented on the electric strength of insulating mixtures and information on the change in the electrical and physical properties of certain insulation liquids subjected to radiation is also included. Furthermore, consideration is given to questions connected with the spark temperature at the time of an electric breakdown and the pressure in the discharge channel.
