Abstract:Polymeric materials in electric power applications has increased rapidly. Special intcrest has been paid on the use of polymeric materials for high voltage outdoor insulators. Some of the major advantages of the polymeric insulators over the traditional ceramic ones are their light weight and lower cost. They are easier and cheaper to store, transport and install. However, the polymeric materials are more prone to deterioration and chemical alterations which can seriously reduce the reliability and life-time o… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
