Paper Abstract

We study the ability of optical fibers to resist the damaging effect of the electric discharge in relation with the power of optical emission transmitted via the fiber. A technique for testing optical fiber samples is discussed. The dependence of the damaging arc current on the power level of transmitted optical emission is considered. It is shown that the power of transmitted optical emission needs to be taken into account when estimating the resistance of the optical fiber to the effect of the electric discharge.
