    It is noted that the past three decades have seen significant changes in the types of materials used for electrical insulation. These changes were brought about by the realization that some of the previously used materials were detrimental to the environment and to the people who came in contact with them. The use of polychlorinated biphenyls was prohibited, and replacement materials had to be dev... View full abstract»

    Developments during the last 25 years in the insulation of rotating machines are reviewed. These developments have primarily been motivated by the need to make smaller machines which operate at higher temperatures to satisfy various specific requirements and to shorten the processing time. This has resulted in changes in materials for slot and coil insulations, as well as for wire enamels, and in ... View full abstract»

    It is noted that, approximately 25 years ago, commercial electronic instruments were brought on the market that heralded a new era in dielectric measurements; this electronic era is now rapidly drawing to a close, and is on the verge of being eclipsed by an era that could be called intelligent instruments. The development of dielectric measurement technology before and after the founding of the Di... View full abstract»

    The need for resistance to surface tracking and erosion partially differentiates outdoor insulation from indoor insulation. A review of the current status of development of standards for testing these properties worldwide on materials and components is presented. Of special interest is the self-restoration of the hydrophobicity of some materials, most notably silicones, after the hydrophobicity ha... View full abstract»

    It is known that sulfurhexafluoride (SF6), used as an insulating gas in HV apparatus, will oxide in electrical discharges in the presence of oxygen or water vapor to form various reactive and stable by-products. In order to interpret experimental data on rates of oxidation and by product formation in discharges, meaningfully, it is necessary to apply theoretical chemical kinetics models...

    Basic physical processes involved in the prebreakdown stages of gaseous dielectrics are discussed, with particular emphasis on electron attachment, electron-molecule scattering, and electron impact ionization. Particular emphasis is placed on the dielectric properties of gases at moderately high pressures (few kilopascals to few atmospheres) and under uniform DC conditions for which the electrons ...
