Impact of Pollution Location on Time and Frequency Characteristics of Leakage Current of Porcelain Insulator String under Different Humidity and Contamination Severity

M. Mirzaie; A. Azizi Tousi

Volume 1, Issue 2 , November 2013, Pages 74-83

  One of the important factors influencing outdoor insulators performance is pollution phenomenon. The pollution, especially during humidity condition, reduces superficial resistance of insulator and lead to a flow of Leakage Currents (LC) on the insulator surface, which may result in total flashover. ...  Read More
