A: Corona: ionization of air due to electric field intensity. The higher the intensity per surface area, the more chances of developing corona. Bundling uses more than one conductors per phase that increase the surface area of conductors, and thus reduces the filed intensity. Q2: Compare the per unit length formulae for transmission line capacitors with the inductance formulae. What are the differences? A: One difference is the radius in the capacitor is the real radius r not the r in the L. For symmetric cases, LC almost equals to a constant: a multiplication of dielectric and permeability constants. Chapter 4: (Summary questions for insights) Q1: Please give the formulae for lumped pi-model parameters in terms of per unit length admittance, impedance values and line length. In practice, what are the formulas for long lines, medium lines and short lines?...
