Abstract : In testing of generators in controlled environments, the provision of a simple, variable and effective electrical load is very important, as it must operate at conditions compatible with the generator output. One typical requirement is that of the high voltage Electrofluid Dynamic (EFD) generator at the Aerospace Research Laboratories. For this reason, investigation of various loading methods was carried out and the load employing the corona discharge mechanism appeared to be particularly compatible with the EFD generator.
