    Partial discharges (PD) are small electrical sparks that can occur in liquid or solid insulation systems in high-voltage equipment, and can eventually cause failure of the equipment [1]?????????[3]. Partial discharge testing has been used for more than 80 years as a factory quality control tool to find manufacturing defects that could eventually lead to equipment failure. We believe that Johnson w... View full abstract»

    Each biological cell, trillions of which build our bodies, is enveloped by its plasma membrane. Composed largely of a bilayer (double layer) of lipids just two molecules thick (about 5 nm), and behaving partly as a liquid and partly as a gel, the cell plasma membrane nonetheless separates and protects the cell from its surrounding environment very reliably and stably. Embedded within the lipid bil... View full abstract»

    In Norway, there are 6000 to 7000 oil-filled high-voltage cable terminations in the transmission network, most of which are constructed following the old design shown in Figure 1. Although the number of reported failures of medium-voltage cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) cables and cable accessories is low, during the last few decades some severe explosive failures with potential for personnel inj...

    Electrical, mechanical, and thermal stresses can degrade the quality of the insulation in power transformers, causing faults [1]. Several methods are used for fault diagnosis in transformers, e.g., dissolved gas analysis (DGA), measurement of breakdown voltage, and tan ??????, pollution, sludge, and interfacial tension tests [2]. Of these, DGA is the most frequently used. Thermal and electrical st... View full abstract»

    Investigations during the last decade have shown that conductive nanoparticles can be dispersed in transformer oils to form nanofluids. Well-dispersed nanoparticles are capable of increasing the breakdown voltage of the oil under power frequency and lightning impulses. They also increase the inception voltages for partial discharge [1]. With increasing moisture content, reduction of the breakdown ... View full abstract»
