Long gap breakdown calculation method considering competitive discharges



A model based on the physics of the discharge is utilized to study the effect of competitive leader discharges incepted in arrangements rod – plane gap type. Results indicate that leaders can be incepted from the competitive gaps; however, a slight advantage on the background electric field will help that only one leader succeed in completing the final jump. Results of leader speed, current and propagation path indicates that the effect of competition between multiple leaders is to delay the leader propagation process.
