Introduction.- High Alternating Voltages and Currents.- High Direct Voltages and Currents.- High Impulse Voltages.- High Impulse Currents.- Electro-Optic und Magneto-Optic Sensors.- Digital Recorders, Software and Calibrators.- Representation of Impulses in the Time and Frequency Domain.- Transfer Behavior of Linear Systems, Convolution and Deconvolution.- Calibration of the Measuring Systems.- Capacitance and Dissipation Factor.- Basics of Partial Discharge Measurement.- Evaluation of Uncertainties of Measurement.
This book conveys the theoretical and experimental basics of a well-founded measurement technique in the areas of high DC, AC and surge voltages as well as the corresponding high currents. Additional chapters explain the acquisition of partial discharges and the electrical measured variables. Equipment exposed to very high voltages and currents is used for the transmission and distribution of electrical energy. They are therefore tested for reliability before commissioning using standardized and future test and measurement procedures. Therefore, the book also covers procedures for calibrating measurement systems and determining measurement uncertainties, and the current state of measurement technology with electro-optical and magneto-optical sensors is discussed.
Dr. Klaus Schon has more than 30 years of professional experience in measurement technology of high voltages and currents as well as of partial discharges and dielectric media, which is expressed in more than 100 publications and lectures.
