Electrical treeing characteristics in XLPE power cable insulation in frequency range between 20 and 500 Hz

  title={Electrical treeing characteristics in XLPE power cable insulation in frequency range between 20 and 500 Hz},
  author={G. Chen and Choon L. Tham},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation},
Electrical treeing is one of the main reasons for long term degradation of polymeric materials used in high voltage AC applications. In this paper we report on an investigation of electrical tree growth characteristics in XLPE samples from a commercial XLPE power cable. Electrical trees have been grown over a frequency range from 20 Hz to 500 Hz and images of trees were taken using CCD camera without interrupting the application of voltage. The fractal dimension of electric tree is obtained… CONTINUE READING
