Crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE)/silica nanocomposites are promising candidates for future cable insulation. While a significant number of studies have demonstrated improved dielectric properties in nanocomposites compared to XLPE, the performance of polyolefin nanocomposites in humid environments has not received much attention. This paper presents and explains the dielectric behavior of XLPE/silica nanocomposites in humid environments such as the decrease in AC breakdown strength, increases in… CONTINUE READING
