Modeling of Corona Discharge And Overvoltage Propagation Along Transmission Lines


A mathematical model is incorporated into the Alternative Transients Program version of the Electromagnetic transients program (ATP/EMTP), using the MODELS interface introducing the algebraic, differential and Boolean equations, to be solved by the Trapezoidal method. The ATP-EMTP part sets out the additional network elements representing the corona model and discusses the basic aspects of modeling. It simulates transmission lines with the corona effect and computes the attenuation and distortion caused by surge propagation along transmission lines due to corona phenomena with the user-defined multi-branch circuit type94 in ATP. The results of the proposed model are compared with experimental investigations in the literature.
