Predictive Determination of the Trajectory of an Electric Discharge

Z. Yeo, M. Koffi, O. Asseu, A. Tanoh, D. Konan and B. Koffi

Abstract:
Some discharge models suppose that the discharge is developed mainly according to an electric field`s line. In this study, a computer program is built in order to carry out accurate determination of the electric field`s lines. Finite element method is implemented to solve the Laplace equation and then the electric field is derivate. Field`s lines are built by successive jumps and their parameters are calculated by a polynomial approximation. Results are successfully compared to empirical formula established by earlier researches in rod to plane geometry. The field`s lines and what could be a discharge line for an aerial insulator are also investigated and discussed.
