A combination of laser irradiation and thermogravimetric analysis has been utilized to understand the degradation dynamics of polymeric materials used for housings of outdoor high voltage (HV) line and apparatus insulators, namely, silicone rubber, ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber and cycloaliphatic epoxy. The induced temperature rise was calculated using laser photo-thermal models and the results were found to be in good agreement with experimental findings. It has been shown that there… CONTINUE READING
