Abstract

The numerical simulation of partial discharge propagation in cable joints was performed by using the finite difference time domain method. It was observed that, when the electric current was forced within nonconducting media, an electrostatic field was established by the pulse. It was shown that the electromagnetic simulation could be applied to solve practical problems in high-voltage systems that involve complex geometries.
