Abstract : The effect of high direct voltage on the formation and dislodging of water drops hanging from a smooth conductor will be shown and used to explain the resulting corona characteristics, such as pulse amplitude and repetition rate, audible noise, radio influence (RI) and loss current, and corona current waveforms. Phenomena taking place during the conductor-drying period are also explained. The relationship between the number and spacing of points on a smooth conductor, on one hand, and RI and loss current, on the other, is demonstrated. Results obtained from water-drop experiments are compared with those from experiments using metal points of various shapes. (Author)
