The aim of this paper is to examine the influence of gamma and X-radiation on relevant characteristics of commercial gas filled surge arresters in the d. c. regime. This question is very important because of the wide application of gas filled surge arresters in telecommunications, military industry and space technology. We found that both types of radiation had significant influence on the performance of gas filled surge arresters.
Key words: gas filled surge arresters, pre-breakdown current, resistance, gamma radiation, X-radiation
