Analysis of Insulating Characteristics of Cl2-He Mixture Gases in Gas Discharges

Abstract
Insulating characteristics of Cl2-He mixture gases in gas discharges were analysed to evaluate ability of these gases for using in medium voltage and many industries. These are electron transport coefficients, which are the electron drift velocity, density-normalized longitudinal diffusion coefficient, and density-normalized effective ionization coefficient, in Cl2-He mixtures. A two-term approximation of the Boltzmann equation was used to calculate the electron transport coefficients for the first time over a wide range of E/N (ratio of the electric field E to the neutral number density N). The limiting field strength values of E/N, (E/N)lim, for these binary gas mixtures were also derived and compared with those of the pure SF6 gas.
