A theoretical basis for the integration method of predicting the strength of insulation subjected to impulses of nonstandard wave shapes is presented. Two theoretical approaches are developed for a general physical model of impulse breakdown applicable to gaseous, liquid, and solid insulation, and from an energy-balance model applied to an incipient breakdown channel in a general dielectric. It is therefore not surprising to find that the integration method is reasonably successful as a tool for predicting nonstandard wave-shape insulation strengths, using as input the data derived from tests with standard-wave-shape impulses. Numerical results are presented that provide an understanding of the shape of volt-time curves. An energy balance model has also been used to derive the resistance of the channel after breakdown has occurred
