corona stabilization

corona stabilization

[kə′rō·nə ‚stā·bə·lə′zā·shən]
(electricity)
The increase in the breakdown voltage of a gas separating two electrodes, where the electric field is very high at one pointed electrode and low at the other, due to the reduction of electric field around the pointed electrode by corona discharge.

Earlier research has shown that the rise time duration of the test voltage increases when the possibility of effective corona stabilization raises.
