    Skin effect: It is tendency of an alternating electric current to become distributed with in conductor such that the current density is largest near the surface of conductor. … A corona will occur when the strength of electric field around a conductor is high enough to form a conductive region. It is often seen as a glow in the air adjacent to pointed metal conductors carrying high voltages.

    Is corona discharge harmful?
    Corona discharge is intentionally used in certain industrial processes including ozone production and electrostatic printing. But generally, it is considered harmful because it involves substantial power loss and a hazard to nearby people and equipment because of toxic and corrosive ozone emissions.

    What is the corona effect in a transmission line?
    The high transmission lines are also called the HT (High Tension) lines.High tension means High Voltage and it is in terms of kVs,due to this High Voltage or High Field intensity the air surrounding the transmission lines get ionised and a hissing sound is generated die to this ionisation process.This is called Corona Effect.
