MATLAB SIMULINK, Impulse Voltage, Marx Circuit


Various high voltage equipments are present in transmission substations. These kind of equipments are so costly and also important, their protection should be the higher priority. These equipment should not only tolerate the rated voltage which is the highest voltage of a system, but also over voltages. Accordingly, it is mandatory to test high voltage (HV) apparatus during its development stage. The insulation of such equipments must be tested under the given artificial lightning or switching overvoltages. This paper describes MATLAB simulation of Multi-stage impulse voltage generator circuit(Marx Circuit) to generate the impulse voltages of 1.2/50µs or 250/2500µs.
