    Abstract

    Polymeric insulating materials with excellent electrical properties are widely used in electrical power equipment. These materials are degraded, however, when they are subjected to partial discharge (PD) with different polymeric materials possessing different levels of PD resistance. In this study the PD characteristics and degradation caused by PD are analysed and compared for four different polymers poly(ether sulphone) (PES), poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET), poly(propylene) (PP) and low-density poly(ethylene) (LDPE).
