Insulators are very important elements of electric power systems. This paper introduces an analysis of electrical conditions in the area between the conductor and the insulator's upperfitting. The designing of new a composite post insulator is presented with the upperfitting made of insulating material. Previous composite post insulators have had upperfittings made of conducting material metal. 3D analysis of electric-field strength in the insulator and its surroundings are also given. The computation was carried out by using the OPERA Vector Fields program tool. The results of this analysis are presented for both-new and old versions of a composite post insulator. 3D analysis shows that the new version has up to five times lower magnitudes of electric-field strength.
