Inside the aluminum contact spot
The electrical properties of a power connector – such as the resistance during its service life – depend on the number, size and quality of the tiny contact spots (“a-spots”) where the current crosses the contact interface. Contact degradation or aging are due to processes occurring in and near the ...
Cavities in mass-impregnated HVDC subsea cables studied by AC partial discharge measurements
Partial discharge measurements have been used for studying shrinkage voids in the insulation of mass-impregnated high voltage DC subsea power cables. Three 4.5-m long cable samples were subjected to ac partial discharge measurements at different ambient temperatures, both under isothermal conditions...
Comparison of Different Air Flow Concepts for a Medium Voltage Load Break Switch
The research and development work towards a compact SF6-free load break switch for the medium voltage range has led to several design proposals. The interruption capability of three different nozzle and gas flow concepts with atmospheric air as the interrupting medium is compared and assessed. The t...
Self-blast current interruption and adaption to medium voltage load current switching
Ablation-assisted current interruption is a candidate for improving interruption capability in medium voltage switchgear. In high voltage switchgear, ablation is utilized to achieve high pressures in self-blast circuit breakers. Self-blast switch technology adapted to medium voltage could represent ...

World first as wind turbine upgraded with high temperature superconductor
Arc voltage measurements of ultrahigh pressure nitrogen Arcs in cylindrical tubes
This paper focuses on the arc voltage measurements of electrical arcs burning inside cylindrical tubes in nitrogen at different filling pressures from atmospheric and up to 80 bar. To investigate the effect of ablation, both nonablating ceramic tubes (alumina) and ablating polytetrafluoroethylene (P...
Fabrication of a scaled MgB2 racetrack demonstrator pole for a 10 MW direct drive wind turbine generator
Field windings made of MgB2 wires or tapes are considered for their potential to reduce volume, weight and cost of large offshore wind turbine generators. To gain experience of how to use this relatively new material in full-scale generators, tests of different winding methodologies and techniques a...
