Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE): Dielectric strength and space charge characteristics


In order to replace old insulation systems based on oil-paper, other materials, such as low density polyethylene (LDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE) and specially, cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), have been used. Characterization of new polymeric materials potentially useful for HVDC power cables is an interesting research topic to work on. In this… (More)
