I am trying to design uniform field gap electrodes using the Rogowski profile. I've read some papers on it, but I'm completely new to this and I am just having a hard time translating what's in the paper to my Matlab code to produce the same results. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this but I've tried for a while now and I'm stuck so wanted to reach out for help.

I am following a paper called "Electrode Design for Testing in Uniform Field Gaps" found at <a href="" rel="noopener"

N. G. Trinh, "Electrode Design for Testing in Uniform Field Gaps," in IEEE Transactions on Power Apparatus and Systems, vol. PAS-99, no. 3, pp. 1235-1242, May 1980, doi: 10.1109/TPAS.1980.319754.

If you cannot access it, just let me know.

- I would like to start off with equation (1) which simplifies to (2) assuming psi=90 degrees. Psi is defined as the equipotential surface, but I'm not completely sure what that is. Is that the angle between the equipotential surface and the field lines?

- A is defined as the characteristic distance separating the plane electrode from the infinite ground plane, but it looks like it is actually the distance from the ground plane to the plane electrode plus 1/2 the thickness (T) of the electrode, correct?

- How to I find Ro? It states that R=Ro+Re where Re=2Re, but I do not see Ro anywhere.

If I can get this, I think I can put it in Matlab to make it work.
