Following the empirically derived hierarchy of subjects identifying degrees of particular teaching subjects popularity among grammar school students, and influence of various factors on students' attitude toward these subjects the authors explored possibilities to eliminate students' negative attitudes and approaches to so-called unfavourite ones, which just natural science and technical disciplines belong to. In the concrete they focused on physics, which was identified as the least favourite subject. In this paper the...

LEAKAGE CURRENTS AND POWER LOSSES ON OUTDOOR INSULATORS UNDER ARTIFICIAL RAINS

Ladislav RUDOLF

JTIE 2009, 1(2):100-108 | 10.5507/jtie.2009.046

The paper is about the theory of creation of leakage currents on insulator suspensions at the lead of the transmission network system. In practice insulators are exposed to weather impacts that are during the year various and they influence conductive conditions at the surface of the insulators. The result is a flow of leakage currents on the surface of the insulator suspensions to the construction of the towers against the ground. On the base of entrance data from the control system CEPS in Ostrava and measurement values form the lab VVN in Prague-Bechovice, in system there are introduced calculations and results. They show the influence of temperature...
