The proceedings of the Seventh International Symposium on Gaseous Dielectrics, held in Knoxville, Tennessee, April 1994, cover recent advances and developments in a wide range of basic, applied, and industrial areas of gaseous dielectrics. The volume is divided into 13 sections: basic physics; basic mechanisms/leader breakdown; gas breakdown; partial discharges/diagnostics; breakdown characteristics under short time fronts and fast transients; special applications of gaseous dielectrics; pulsed power switching/gas recovery; gas decomposition/plasma chemistry; DC GIS/charging of solid insulators; developments in gas-insulated equipment; reliability testing of GIS; corona/surface discharges; and discussion panel--real time control diagnostics/gaseous dielectrics needs in HVDC.
