Breaking Down a Cable Fault with Capacitive Discharge (“Thumping”)

The capacitor discharge technique is performed with a surge generator, nicknamed “thumper.”  This device converts line power into high voltage, unidirectional, impulses that are transmitted into a faulted power cable. A simplified circuit of a surge generator connected to a faulted cable is shown in Figure 1.
