Abstract: This paper discusses an examination of aging degradation of mechanical performance of composite insulators, and also describes useful approaches for analyzing their long term performance so as to develop reliable composite insulators. The static load time test data are examined by Weibull distribution for their capability of pressuming long term performance. Degradation of mechanical strength and the behaviour of FRP rod are also analyzed by the acoustic emission method. In addition the cyclic load tests are …
