Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Field results from a 132 kV, SF6 circuit breaker (CB) using a 2.5 GSps, 1 GHz bandwidth, measuring system showed that radiated transients contained distinct frequency components at 300 MHz, 500 MHz and 840 MHz. Using a simplified NEC based model of the CB, these frequency components are shown to be related to the physical size of the breaker switching contacts.
