    Abstract

    In this paper, some of the characteristics of an arc propagating over an ice-covered insulator surface were investigated. Special attention was paid to the arc root and channel characteristics. All experiments were performed on a simplified physical model to simulate real ice-covered insulators. From the obtained results, based on a set of time-resolved measurements of a surface discharge, some important characteristics, namely arc foot geometry and channel diameter were observed.
