Corona is a self sustaining, often luminous discharge due to ionization adjacent to charged conductors, characterized by the electrodes having a small radius of curvature compared with the interelectrode gap. The display on a power transmission line is accompanied by a current between the conductors which to an engineer mean a power loss that should be minimized if unavoidable.
