Recent visual examination of unfilled polyethylene (PE) and cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation removed from cables which had been in service for a number of years, revealed so-called treeing patterns in some of the examined specimens.1,2 Electrical trees, originated by partial discharges, have been observed for a long time in various types of insulation, including PE and XLPE.3,4 We have studied electrical treeing effects very broadly, and have come to the conclusion that this effect… CONTINUE READING
