Abstract

Measurements of electric field strength in gas insulated high-voltage components using a tunable diode laser spectrometer have been made. The method utilizes the linear Stark effect in a trace gas molecule (nitric oxide) introduced in the insulating gas (sulfur-hexafluoride). Polarization effects make it possible to monitor the local electric field as to both magnitude and direction. Changes in the sparking potential due to the introduced trace gas have been investigated.
