This paper attempts to study the propagating characteristics of acoustic signals emitted from the breakdown of air using time domain numerical model. Acoustic emissions are produced by high voltage faults such as partial discharge and surface discharge. Study of such emissions has become popular among researchers because of the promising correlation between partial and surface discharges and its byproduct, acoustic signal emission. In this paper, propagation characteristics of acoustic signals are studied using finite difference time domain (FDTD) method. Multiple monitoring points are placed within a designated computation space at different distance away from a source.
