  2. 2. Eliminating zero-missing phenomenon in long, high voltage, underground cables

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Författare :Agnes Linnet; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Underground cable; zero-missing phenomenon; switching transients; shunt reactors; underexcited generators; Underjordisk kabel; nollbristande fenomen; växlingstransienter; shuntreaktorer; underexiterad generatorer;
