Re: [TCML] BPS Testing

Hi Gary,

Yes I did cause confusion. I was talking about the ratio of extra breaks that occurred from a calculated value. I noticed that the ratio of extra breaks increased by 11% and that is what I was trying to get across. But as I read my own writing, I realized it would cause confusion so I was trying to clarify (apparently that attempt failed also). I was just curious if we would see a greater percentage of those "quick" breaks with higher voltage and the answer is yes. Does that help? I now want to explain those quick breaks.

I'm curious on your thoughts about measuring input current and bps at the same time on two analog inputs. Any change in current would be time stamped with these fast breaks. I can use the Pearson current monitor and run the BNC output directly to the acquisition device. So if high current peaks occur at these fast breaks, we can be sure current is the cause and the best answer to that at this point is ferro resonance. But if the current isn't involved with these breaks, then it is likely lower voltage arcs and those are likely due to the breakdown voltage reduction (ions). Even NST output current is an option here.

Take care,

Hi Bart,

I'm confused - When you say the firing rate increased by 11%, isn't that the same as saying that the BPS increased by 11%?  I think most would interpret it as such.
