A 154 kV class high-temperature superconducting (HTS) power cable system Is developing in Korea. For insulation design of this cable, the grading method of insulating paper is proposed. The electrical insulation material has been used two kind of laminated polypropylene paper (LPP) that has different thickness. The use of graded insulation gives improved mechanical bending properties of the cable. Also, within a HTS cable technology the terminations are important components. A HTS cable termination is energized with the line-to-ground voltage between the coaxial center and outer surrounding conductors, in the axial direction there is a temperature difference from ambient to about 77 K. For insulation design of this termination, the insulation material of the termination body used glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) and the capacitance-graded method is proposed. Therefore, in order to insulating design of a 154 kV class HTS power cable and termination, this paper will report on the experimental investigations in impulse breakdown and surface flashover characteristics of the insulation materials. Based on these experimental data, the electrical insulation design of a 154 kV class HTS power cable and termination were calculated.
