6 m) rod–plane gap showing on left, streamer formation (leader corona) at the leader tips. Impulse voltage ∼330 kV (after Hassanzahraee, PhD thesis, University of Leeds, 1989) system advances at the rate of 2 cmμs−1 , then the energy dissipated in the leader corona alone in 1 m of advance is about 15 J. The energy available to heat the leader channel itself is estimated at about 10 Jm−1 . As will be shown below, these are average values, indicating general features only, since the potential gradient in the leader varies along its length and the leader corona is also variable.

In both cases, these impulses may be reflected from discontinuities in the transmission line, with consequent increase in voltage. For this reason, testing of high voltage apparatus is carried out under an impulse voltage related to, but much higher than, the proposed operating voltage. 2 μs and a decay to half the peak value in 50 μs [31]. 11). The duration of voltage around the peak is thus short compared with the times required for a leader to advance a significant distance, but the time scales are long compared with that needed by streamers to propagate.

Both of these properties arise from the lack of any negative discharge growth at the plane. The absence of significant leader growth and consequent lack of ambiguities makes the positive lightning impulse an important test voltage, recommended in standards, to be applied to high voltage components and apparatus, such as bushings, insulators, transformers and so on. Under negative impulse voltage, applied to a rod–plane gap, the sparkover voltage increases with gap length slightly less rapidly than linearly, but the magnitudes are a factor of nearly two greater than those for the positive case.
