A cause of aging and cascaded failure of high voltage insulators is investigated by assessing the radiation propagating from a faulty insulator. The transfer of electromagnetic energy from corona discharge to healthy insulators situated on the same power pole is assessed. The results show that the high intensity of electric field associated with corona discharge on faulty insulators can lead to aging and finally failure of high voltage infrastructure.
