Correct Answer - Option 2 : V3

Corona loss:

The power dissipated in the system due to corona discharges is called corona loss. Accurate estimation of corona loss is difficult because of its variable nature. It has been found that the corona loss under fair weather conditions is less than under foul weather conditions.

Corona loss formulae:

1. Based on voltage:

Linear relationship:

Skilling's formula: Pc ∝ V – V0

Peek's formula: Pc ∝ (V – V0)2

Ryan and Henline formula: Pc ∝ V (V – V0)

Peterson's formula: Pc ∝ V2F (V/V0), where F is an experimental factor

Cubic Relationship:

Foust and Menger formula: Pc ∝ V3

Prinz's formula: Pc ∝ V2 (V – V0)

Nigol and Cassan formula: Pc ∝ E2 ln (E/E0)

Project EHV formula: Pc ∝ V.Em, m = 5
