Abstract:In order to clarify the mechanism of electrical-tree inception and propagation from a water tree within polyethylene, we have investigated effects of water-tree degradation condition and impulsevoltage application on electrical-tree propagation from water tree, As for the condition of water-tree degradation, we have investigated electrical-tree inception voltage by using NaCl solution with different concentrations. Regardless of concentration, the inception voltage becomes higher with the watertree size. This … 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.
