This concise textbook is intended for undergraduate students of electrical engineering offering a course in high voltage engineering. Written in an easy-to-understand style, the text, now in its Second Edition, acquaints students with the physical phenomena and technical problems associated with high voltages in power systems. A complete quantitative description of the topics in high voltage engineering is difficult because of the statistical nature of the electrical breakdown phenomena in insulators. With this in mind, this book has been written to provide a basic treatment of high voltage engineering qualitatively and, wherever necessary, quantitatively. Special emphasis has been laid on breakdown mechanisms in gaseous dielectrics as it helps students gain a sound conceptual base for appreciating high voltage problems. The origin and nature of lightning and switching overvoltages occurring in power systems have been explained and illustrated with practical observations. The protection of high voltage insulation against such overvoltages has also been discussed lucidly. The concept of modern digital methods of high voltage testing of insulators, transformers, and cables has been explained. In the Second Edition, a new chapter on electrostatic field estimation and an appendix on partial discharges have been added to update the contents. Solved problems help students develop a critical appreciation of the concepts discussed. End-of-chapter questions enable students to obtain a more in-depth understanding of the key concepts.

In any industry or system it is necessary to evaluate risks and consequences of unexpected changes to the operation. In power engineering, variables are encountered throughout production, transmission and consumption processes. This book is written from years of experimenting with different mathematical techniques to model these uncertainties, use of which should open up new possibilities of rationalisation and efficiency. Although written by and primarily for high-voltage engineers, all engineers will find the techniques of interest and benefit.

The book is written for students as well as for teachers and researchers in the field of High Voltage and Insulation Engineering. It is based on the advance level courses conducted at TU Dresden, Germany and Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India. The book has a novel approach describing the fundamental concept of field dependent behavior of dielectrics subjected to high voltage. There is no other book in the field of high voltage engineering following this new approach in describing the behavior of dielectrics. The contents begin with the description of fundamental terminology in the subject of high voltage engineering. It is followed by the classification of electric fields and the techniques of field estimation. Performance of gaseous, liquid and solid dielectrics under different field conditions is described in the subsequent chapters. Separate chapters on vacuum as insulation and the lightning phenomenon are included.
