  author={Joanne. Garrard},
The performance of high voltage outdoor insulators can be greatly affected by weather conditions. The weather conditions under investigation are cold temperatures coupled with high humidity levels. Weather data from a number of coastal stations around South Africa was analyzed to determine whether surface condensation was likely on outdoor insulators under these weather conditions. A heat transfer equation was used to determine the response of the insulator surface temperature to the… 


Silicone Rubber Insulators: Impacts of Material Formulation in Coastal Environment
This thesis deals with influences of material formulation on the performance of silicone rubber high voltage insulators in a coastal environment. Samples and insulators with known differences in
Composite rod insulators for AC power lines: electrical performance of various designs at a coastal testing station
The electrical performance of 36 composite insulators comprised of four commercial types for each AC-system level of 34.5 kV, 230 kV, and 500 kV is determined. The weathershed materials are
Nonceramic Insulators for Transmission Lines
Progress in the development of nonceramic transmission line insulator technology is reviewed. The results of a survey of utilities in the United States are presented to indicate the range of

A sessile, pendant and clinging water drop on the surface of a silicone rubber insulator has been considered theoretically and investigated experimentally from the standpoint of water-triggered
A Computer Model for Assessing Dew / Frost Surface Deposition
Using simple meteorological data, we were able to model the amount of nocturnal dew or frost deposited on a given surface thermally isolated from the ground. The surface temperature can be obtained
