Get this from a library! The theory of electrical conduction and breakdown in solid dielectrics. [John J O'Dwyer]. Faculty of Engineering at Shoubra High Voltage Engineering (1) Electrical Engineering Department , E. M. S. Page 1 Of 10 CHAPTER 4 BREAKDOWN in SOLID DIELECTRICS INTRODUCTION Solid dielectric materials are used in all kinds of electrical circuits and devices to insulate one current carrying part from another when they operate at File Size: KB. In Conduction and Breakdown in Commercial Liquids where minute traces of impurities are present, the breakdown strength is determined by the “largest possible impurity” or “weak link” On a statistical basis it was proposed that the electrical breakdown strength of the oil is defined by the weakest region in the oil, namely, the region. Theory of Electrical Conduction and Breakdown in Solid Dielectrics by John J. O'Dwyer, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.3/5(1).
Of these, the first is a process analogous to the electrical breakdown of gases. In the absence of an external field, the few electrons in the upper band are in the lowest energy state of this band; under the action of an electric field, they are raised to higher levels.

The mechanism of electrical breakdown in solid dielectrics is analyzed using the results of our investigations performed in this direction over a period of several decades. It is shown that the electrical breakdown in solid dielectrics involves interrelated prebreakdown processes, such as high-voltage polarization, defect formation, electron impact excitation and Cited by: 7.

This type of Breakdown of Solid Dielectrics in Practice is very important in the impregnated paper insulation used in high High Voltage Cables. Chemical and Electrochemical Deterioration and Breakdown. In the presence of air and other gases some dielectric materials undergo chemical changes when subjected to continuous electrical stresses.
