Preface to First Edition

The need for an up-to-date textbook in High Voltage Engineering fundamentals has been apparent for some time. The earlier text of Kuffel and Abdullah published in 1970, although it had a wide circulation, was of somewhat limited scope and has now become partly outdated.

In this book an attempt is made to cover the basics of high voltage laboratory techniques and high voltage phenomena together with the principles governing design of high voltage insulation.

Following the historical introduction the chapters 2 and 3 present a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of laboratory, high voltage generation and measurement techniques and make extensive references to the various international standards.
