This paper deals with application of stochastic procedures for the analysis of PDHD (partial discharge height distributions) detected during life of insulation systems. Experiments of accelerated aging under electrical stress were carried out on both an artificial flat cavity and a 23 kV epoxy-resin insulator, where PD are already active at the beginning of aging. A correlation between aging time and PDHD features is observed during long-term voltage application, until breakdown, on both objects. In particular, the PDHD analysis is approached by means of the Weibull function. It is shown that the time evolution of shape and scale parameters can provide diagnostic indications on aging amount, incoming failure and thus on the reliability of insulation systems
