The design of a leakage current monitor for live line bare hand maintenance (1992)
Type of ContentTheses / Dissertations
Thesis DisciplineElectrical Engineering
Degree NameMaster of Engineering
PublisherUniversity of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering
This thesis describes the design of an instrument for the protection of personnel carrying out live line bare hand maintenance of power transmission circuits. This instrument monitors the leakage current along equipment to ground and sounds an alarm when preset thresholds are exceeded. The leakage current monitor is microprocessor controlled, resulting in both flexible and user friendly operation. The prototype constructed, has been tested and found to perform very well.
KeywordsLive line bare hand maintenance; power transmission circuits; leakage current monitor

Design of a Miniaturised Asymmetrical Power Splitter Using Low Impedance Artifical Transmission Lines Bommana, Srinivasarao (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2010)Transmission lines are the basic building blocks of any RF and microwave circuits. The width of a microstripline increases as the characteristic impedance is lowered for a given substrate. Wide microstriplines suffer from ...
