Optimizing Silicone Rubber-Based Housing Materials for HV Composite Insulators in Outdoor Applications

The trend toward tailor-made composite insulator solutions is pushing further development of their housing materials and designs. This is triggered by strategic moves such as UHV, expansion of HVDC, new requirements in utility specifications and compact lines. These trends are also reflected in refinement of existing test methods to verify quality as well new tests to better transfer service experience into the design stage. This presentation focuses on trends in new HTV silicone rubbers and gives examples of developments in their formulations to meet more demanding requirements based on service experience as well as the new test methods.
