High-voltage measurement techniques Halim, Armand Gregoire


The Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of British Columbia acquired a high-voltage test set in 1979 for teaching and research purposes. To make this test set useful for experiments which undergraduate students can do themselves, various additions and modifications had to be made. This thesis describes these additions and modifications. First, a Faraday cage had to be constructed with interlocking safety circuits. Experiments were then developed to show basic high-voltage phenomena with AC voltage, with DC voltage, and with impulse voltages. Considerable modifications were required to eliminate noise in the impulse measuring system.
