We use the Kaptzov's assumption [12] to determine boundary conditions on the surface of corona wire: electric field strength on the surface [E.sub.(ro)] is proportional to the voltage below the corona onset [U.sub.0], and stays constant and equal to the initial field strength value [E.sub.0] determined from Peek's formula for U [greater than or equal to] [U.sub.0] [16].
