  • Quantitative evaluation of the surface weathering of non-ceramic insulators

    Some composite materials have performed significantly better than others in HV overhead line outdoor insulation applications, with a large proportion of the failures which have occurred in service generally related to a few specific products. Advances in materials technology over the next ten years can be expected to widen further the range of products available, and therefore test standards for the determination of the long-term performance of nonceramic insulators must include more meaningful pass/fail criteria for evaluation of ageing, so that selection for long-term reliability can be made more objective. The range of diagnostics techniques described by the author provides a good picture of the changes in surface characteristics which are responsible for increased probability of flashover in service conditions.<<ETX>>

  • The Use of Experimental and Artificial Neural Network Technique to Estimate Age against Surface Leakage Current for Non-ceramic Insulators

    Solid insulators breakdown mechanism is always associated with surface leakage current. Surface leakage current causes surface tracking. Surface tracking in non-ceramic insulators is an unwanted phenomenon, which cannot be accurately predicted. This paper introduces an experimental and analytical technique to predict the insulator life time, and presents an experimental measurements of the surface leakage current against time of nonceramic insulators on naturally aged insulators and artificially contaminated material. A comparison of surface leakage current for fourteen different type of non-ceramic materials under the same conditions is also introduced in this paper (the mentioned nonceramic materials are mainly silicon rubber (SR) and poly propylene (PP), with different filler percentage). The study of the leakage current dependence on the insulators contamination level is also presented in this paper. Different prototype of artificial neural networks-based system that can estimate the insulator age under different contamination level at the surface of polymer insulators by employing the experimentally measured leakage current was constructed in this paper. The proposed prototype is trained for different filler level for different insulator type in the neural network. The proposed technique in this paper predicts the best non-ceramic insulator with the exact filler percentage that withstands higher voltage with longer life time under contaminated weather and polluted condition. The proposed technique is considered to be helpful tool in the area of quality control

  • Optimization of electric field grading systems in non-ceramic insulators

    In this work two electrical stress grading techniques for non-ceramic insulators are analyzed. In both techniques some parameters were optimized for a 115 kV non-ceramic insulator. Electric field simulations were performed with finite element method while, for the optimization process, different functions of the MATLAB® optimization toolbox were used. In the first case the optimized parameters were the relative permittivity of the material and the geometry of insulator on the energized side. The simulations were made under power frequency and under normalized lightning impulse. Modification of the shape next to the energized side consists of changing the inclination angle of the housing material. Furthermore, the corona ring position is optimized on the energized side of the non-ceramic insulator for comparison with the aforementioned method. According to the results, it was found that there are geometric parameters and material properties that minimize the value for the maximum electric field along the insulator surface.

  • Detecting damages in outdoor non-ceramic insulators using near field microwave non-destructive testing

    This paper presents a novel near-field microwave nondestructive testing technique for defect detection in non- ceramic insulators (NCI). In this work, distribution class 33 kV NCI samples with no defects, air voids in silicone rubber and small metallic particles between the fiber core and shank were inspected. The microwave inspection system utilizes an open-ended rectangular waveguide sensor operating in the near-field at a frequency of 24 GHz. The used inspection system is simple, safe and relatively inexpensive. A data acquisition system was used to record the measured data. The results showed that all defects were repeatedly detected with high sensitivity. Line scans of the samples were obtained revealing the presence of different defects and their location. The technique also demonstrated ability to detect thickness variations in the silicone rubber shank.

  • Utilizing digital image processing techniques to evaluate the condition of non-ceramic insulators

    The aim of this paper is to develop an automated system to classify and assess the surface condition of silicone rubber material. Both Radon transformation and the gray-level co-occurrence matrix were examined as image processing and features extraction techniques while using the artificial neural network as a classifier. A database comprised of 358 images was collected and preprocessed representing the well-known seven hydrophobicity classes. A recognition rate of 95.67% was achieved while using combined features from both techniques using stepwise regression as feature selection technique to form the input feature vector. The developed system overcomes the disadvantages of the current evaluation techniques by eliminating the human intervention.

  • Live-line maintenance of AC overhead lines equipped with non ceramic insulators (NCI)

    The paper makes a qualitative/quantitative analysis of the defects which may affect the possibility of Live-Line Working (LLW) on overhead lines equipped with Non-Ceramic (NCI) or composite insulators. Diagnostic techniques available at present for the detection of such defects are evaluated. It is shown that the present level of accumulated knowledge and the available diagnostic tools make it possible to assess the conditions of NCIs and to assure safe LLW for the overhead lines equipped with NCIs.

  • Salt fog aging tests on non-ceramic insulators and fog chamber data acquisition system

    Significant improvements in the quality and performance of non-ceramic insulators have been made in the 25 years since their introduction for use in high voltage transmission and distribution systems. However, the industry in general still has questions about the service life of such insulators. A combination of field service experience and laboratory aging tests can help answer these questions. One of the aging tests which is extensively applied to evaluate polymeric weathershed materials of non-ceramic insulators is the salt fog aging test. To obtain more information during the test periods and to have a better understanding of the performance of insulator samples during aging tests, a data acquisition system was developed to record the leakage current of insulators being tested. Salt fog aging tests in accordance with IEC Std. 1109 were performed on silicone rubber and EPDM/silicone alloy insulators. Test and leakage current measurement results are presented.

  • Detecting internal defect of non-ceramic insulators using a novel micromachined electric field sensor

    The paper presented a novel MEMS (Microelectro-mechanicalsystems) electric field sensor (EFS) based on SOI (Silicon on Insulator) fabrication process for detecting internal defect of non-ceramic (composite) insulators. The ability to measure both AC and DC electric field is a significant advantage of this sensor in comparison to other sensors, which can only measure either AC or DC electric field. The MEMS structure is designed to work at resonant frequency for maximum sensitivity to electric fields. Prototyped by the SOI fabrication process, the device gives high quality factor (Q) of approximately 31034 at a vacuum degree of ~1mTorr with lower actuation voltages (i.e., 250mV DC and 20mVp-p). The sensing area of this sensor is only 5mm×5mm and it requires only less than 1μW to drive its shutter. Tested in ambient air conditions, a minimum detectable DC and AC electric field with current sensor designs better than 50V/m is also achieved. The use of a miniature sensor also helps to measure local electric field around insulators accurately since the field distortion caused by the sensor is minimum. Experiments show that the EFS probe can be succeeded in detecting the internal defect of non-ceramic insulators remotely.
