  • The authors describe a high-voltage test procedure for investigating surface breakdown and report on its application. A high-voltage test vessel was constructed and a test procedure developed to explore the solid/fluid interface. Both silicone oil and mineral oil were tested. Kraft paper boards and Nomex boards were the solid materials investigated. Average breakdown voltages from measurements on all boards are tabulated. Results show that both oils performed similarly, particularly on low… CONTINUE READING
