What is a corona Shielding Sphere

A corona shielding sphere is also known as corona shielding ball and used in high voltage bushing and power testing equipment, which are mainly made of aluminum alloy.

Generally the corona shielding sphere needs to be polished bright to achieve more smooth and no burr surface finish to ensure better corona shielding effect.

Corona shielding sphere is widely used on the end fittings of high voltage bushings and other high voltage testing equipments. High voltage can result in unwanted noise and corona, so corona shielding spheres are needed.

Corona shielding sphere is suitable for the voltage form of alternating current (AC), which can distribute the high voltage evenly around the object to ensure that there is no potential difference (PD) between the various parts of the sphere.

How Does a Corona Shielding Sphere Work

The corona shielding sphere is widely used for high voltage bushing and equipment to suppress corona effectively.

At sharp point (like bushing head) the electric field is high which results in corona. Aluminum corona shielding sphere should be installed at this point.

The larger outside diameter, smooth polishing surface finish of aluminum corona shielding sphere can help control the local electric field.

So electric field gradient reduces and suppresses the corona. As the testing voltage increases the outside diameter of the required corona shielding sphere must also increase to obtain better corona control effect.

Highv has rich decades of experience in corona shielding sphere design and shielding solutions technology, uses advanced manufacturing equipments and high efficient drawing software, which can make sure user’s every project to run more smoothly, safely and efficiently.

What Is Corona Shielding Sphere Packaging?

  1. Highv has professional packaging team who can adopt developed packaging technology and packaging style to ensure the corona sphere packaging quality.
  2. Standard sea packing, the corona sphere packing can be done by wooden case and carton box. The wooden case and corona spheres contact parts must be padded with foamed paper or rubber. Wooden case four corners shall not be smaller than the size of the corona balls. Corona shielding sphere’s surface is wrapping foam paper, and four sides contacting with wooden case with foam mat protection.
  3. In addition, clear labels are tagged on the outside of the packages for easy identification of the corona shielding sphere measurements and quality information.

How To Design Aluminum Corona Shielding Spheres For 460kV Terminal Bushing

Aluminum corona shielding spheres and balls are the most important part to control the electric field on the head of 460kV transformer terminal bushings.

Aluminum corona shielding sphere is designed as a aluminum alloy ball whose axis lies along the shank of 460kV transformer terminal bushings.

The three main design parameters of aluminum corona shielding sphere which determine the magnitude and location of maximum surface electric field are aluminum corona shielding sphere outer diameter, spheres wall thickness and distance of aluminum corona shielding sphere from the high voltage end.

Impact of each factor is studied in detail while design the optimization model of corona shielding sphere.

If designing the aluminum corona shielding spheres for transformer’s bushings still seems overly complex, the best thing to do is consult an design and manufacturing expert.
