The main form of electrical discharge in long air gaps is broken down by leader mechanism. The leader development in rod-rod gaps under positive switching impulse was investigated by using two high-speed CCD cameras. The clearer and more particular colorized physical morphology of the leader propagation process than the traditional image converter cameras was recorded and the leader development parameters were also obtained. As a comparative study, an improved simplified model for rod-rod configuration was performed to simulate the leader development. The numerical simulations of leader development characteristics were in a close agreement with that of experimental measurements.
