Zinc oxide surge arresters using zinc oxide (ZnO) elements have been widely used for insulation coordination in the world's power systems. These ZnO elements have basically reference voltage of about 200 V/mm. Recently, new ZnO elements having about 1.5, 2 times high voltage gradient zinc oxide element have been developed. This paper describes applications of high voltage gradient 300 V/mm ZnO elements to high performance porcelain type surge arresters and oil immersed surge arresters, and 300 V/mm or 400 V/mm ZnO elements to gas insulated tank type surge arresters for power systems. Adequate selection of voltage gradient of ZnO elements makes more compact design of the surge arresters
