Atmospheric and altitude correction factors for air gaps and clean insulators
The influence of atmospheric conditions on the dielectric strength of external insulation is complex. This is because the degree of influence is different for different discharge processes, e.g., corona, streamer, and leader discharges. At the same time, the type of discharge processes that may appear across the insulation is determined by many other parameters.
