Dielectrics in Electric Fields, Second Edition by Gorur Govinda Raju

By Gorur Govinda Raju

Dielectrics in electrical Fields explores the impact of electrical fields on dielectric—i.e., non-conducting or insulating—materials, analyzing the specified behaviors of those fabrics via well-established rules of physics and engineering.


Featuring 5 new chapters, approximately two hundred new figures, and greater than 800 new citations, this absolutely up-to-date and considerably extended Second Edition:




  • Analyzes inorganic ingredients with real-life purposes in harsh operating stipulations similar to open air, nuclear, and area environments

  • Introduces equipment for measuring dielectric homes at microwave frequencies, offering effects bought for particular materials

  • Discusses the appliance of dielectric thought in allied fields akin to corrosion experiences, civil engineering, and wellbeing and fitness sciences

  • Combines in a single bankruptcy assurance of electric breakdown in gases with breakdown in micrometric gaps

  • Offers wide assurance of electron strength distribution—essential wisdom required for the appliance of plasma sciences in clinical science

  • Delivers a close evaluation of breakdown in beverages, besides an summary of electron mobility, supplying a transparent knowing of breakdown phenomena

  • Explains breakdown in reliable dielectrics corresponding to unmarried crystals, polycrystalline and amorphous states, skinny motion pictures, and powders compressed to shape pellets

  • Addresses the most recent advances in dielectric concept and study, together with state of the art nanodielectric fabrics and their useful applications

  • Blends early classical papers that laid the root for a lot of the dielectric concept with newer work


The writer has drawn from greater than fifty five years of analysis reports and adventure within the components of high-voltage engineering, strength platforms, and dielectric fabrics and structures to provide either aspiring and practising engineers with a complete, authoritative resource for up to date details on dielectrics in electrical fields.
