Abderrahmane Beroual is a distinguished full Professor at University of Lyon in the Ecole Centrale de Lyon, France. His research has made a substantial contribution to long air gaps discharge and lightning, outdoor insulation, modelling of discharges and composite materials, pre-breakdown and breakdown phenomena in dielectric fluids and solid/fluid interfaces. He was elected IEEE fellow in 2011 for his contribution to processes of pre-breakdown and breakdown in dielectric liquids.
Issouf Fofana is chair professor at the Universite du Quebec a
Chicoutimi (UQAC) and Director of the Modeling and Diagnostic of
Power Network Equipment (MODELE) laboratory. He is actively
involved with teaching and research in the area of high-voltage
engineering with emphases on the insulation diagnostic/modelling
relevant to power equipment.
Researchers interested in dielectric breakdown of large air gaps or
those with an interest in lightning will find this book well worth
reading. It would also be a good resource in academia as a
graduate-level text for HV engineering in a power engineering
