Methods for the testing of the dielectric breakdown strength of insulation on metal wires under variable humidity conditions were developed. Two methods, an ASTM method and the twisted pair method, were compared to determine if the twisted pair method could be used for determination of breakdown strength under variable humidity conditions. It was concluded that, although there were small differences in outcomes between the two testing methods, the non-standard method (twisted pair) would be…

Modern electrical machines must be designed as rugged and flexible. The use of power electronic devices cause voltage spikes and introduce harmonics that electrically degrade the insulation of the
