In this paper, a phase difference of liveline insulator was measured and analyzed to estimate the contamination degree. The probability of accident rises according to the increase of the contamination. So the estimation of contamination degree is very important in design and maintenance of outdoor insulator. There are many methods to measure the contamination degree, but those methods use the spacial sense to measure the contamination degree. So, we have no information about the contamination from the liveline insulator, but there is a measurement of phase difference to estimate the contamination degree. The phase difference is varied with the increase of ESDD, so the contamination degree could be estimated by using those characteristics. The experiment is performed to analyze the interrelationship between contamination degree and phase difference. The variable condition is relative humidity that increases from 30 to 100 % in a chamber. We use the DAS program to measure and analyze the data. From the result, the variation of phase difference is different by the contamination degree, so we can confirm the possibility of estimating the contamination degree by the phase difference.
