An Analysis of Insulating Reliability in Epoxy Composites for Molding Materials of PT

  • Published : 2001.09.21


The DC dielectric breakdown of epoxy composites used for transformer was experimented and then its data were simulated by Weibull distribution equation in this study. The more hardener increased the stronger breakdown strength at low temperature because of cross-linked density by the virtue of ester radical, and the breakdown strength of specimens with filler was lower than it of non-filler specimens because it was believed that the adding filler formed interface, charges were accumulated in it, the molecular mobility was raised, the electric field was concentrated, electrons were accelerated and then electron avalanche was early accomplished. From the analysis of Wei bull distribution equation, it was confirmed that as the allowed breakdown probability was· given by 0.1[%], the value of 'applied field was needed to be under 17.20[kV/mm].
