Paper Abstract

Over many years, the high voltage gas discharge studies undertaken by the Electrical Power Engineering Group in the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow have benefitted from the use of ultra-high-speed photography. The use of image-converter-intensifier cameras, with a maximum framing speed of 2x107s-1 and a maximum streak-speed of 1000mm/us is described. The various techniques used; the problems encountered and a brief selection of recordings obtained are presented.
