Insulation breakdown characteristics of an inverter surge resistant enameled wire were investigated in a twisted pair prepared with organic/inorganic hybrid nanocomposite. Organic polymer was polyesterimide-polyamideimide (EI/AI) and inorganic material was a nano-sized silica. The enamel thickness was 50 μm and the diameters of enameled copper wires were 0.75, 1.024, and 1.09 mm, respectively. There were many air gaps in a twisted pair. Therefore, when the voltage was applied to the twisted pair, enamel erosion took place in the air gap area because of partial discharge according to Paschen’s law. The insulation lifetime of the hybrid wire (HW) was 41,750 sec, which was 515.4 times more than the 81 sec of EI/AIW. In addition, the shape parameter of HW was 2.58, which was 3.4 times higher than 0.75 of EI/AIW.
