AbstractAnalyses of the responses of radio noise meter quasi­ peak and field intensity circuits to the following types of in­ put pulses are given: periodic rectangular pulses, random rectangular pulses, random double exponential pulses (e.g., positive corona pulses). An experimental investigation of corona pulses originating on points and conductors is de­ scribed. The probability density functions for the time in­ tervals between pulses, and the shapes and amplitudes of these pulses were determined. It is shown that for random corona pulses, with charac­ teristics disclosed in tests on conductors, the quasi-peak reading of a noise meter is proportional to the average charge content of the pulse and to the square root of the average repetition rate.
