This NASA Technical Handbook presents an overview of the current understanding of the electrical design techniques that can mitigate deleterious effects (such as Paschen and corona discharges) resulting from operation of a high-voltage system in space, references common design practices that have been successful in mitigating these effects in the past, and recommends standard practices to eliminate or mitigate such effects in the future.
