Data useful in the design of dc capacitors have been taken on the voltage for arcover VAacross a distance d on the surface of an insulating polymer film. It is found that VA (kV) = 3d (mm)0.55for arcover in air at p = 83 kPa, T = 20°C and 30 percent RH. The equation applies to buried foil capacitors and to an electrode configuration that simulates a single turn of an extended foil capacitor. For extended foil capacitors it is found that VAincreases as 1.0d0.90.
