In any industry or system it is necessary to evaluate risks and consequences of unexpected changes to the operation. In power engineering, variables are encountered throughout production, transmission and consumption processes. This book is written from years of experimenting with different mathematical techniques to model these uncertainties, use of which should open up new possibilities of rationalisation and efficiency. Although written by and primarily for high-voltage engineers, all engineers will find the techniques of interest and benefit.
Review of fundamentals; basic concepts of probability theory; distribution functions; selected theoretical distribution functions; fundamentals of correlation and regression; selected test methods; planning, execution and evaluation of measurements; selection of measuring methods, experimental parameters and test equipment; constant-voltage experiments to determine performance function; rising-voltage tests to determine cumulative frequency function; methods for determining selected quantiles; statistical assessment of standardized test methods; statistical description of insulating capacity; enlargement laws.
