The resolts of an experimental study of the 60 Hz ac corona Inception voltage at reduced pres s ures for a cylindrical conductor and a parallel ground pi ane are presented. Sever al spacings and bare and Insolated conductors of several diameters are cousidered. Empirical expressions from which a reasonably accurate prediction of the corona inception voltage (CIV) may be made have been inferred from experimental data.
