An experimental study was conducted, using the Inclined Plane Test method to determine the performance of typical power line insulator materials: RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanized) silicone rubber coated porcelain, HTV (High Temperature Vulcanized) silicone rubber and EPDM rubber. The constant voltage method was employed to evaluate the performance of the… CONTINUE READING
