The paper presents space charge distributions under opposite voltage polarities in full size cross-linked polyethylene power cables using the pulsed electro-acoustic technique. Under both positive and negative polarities, space charge distributions possess similar profiles but opposite polarities. A similar phenomenon had been reported previously in plaque samples and was termed the “mirror image effect”. By comparing the results between cables treated by degassing under different conditions, the paper concludes that the “mirror image” charge distribution is mainly attributed to a bulk effect within the volume of the insulation, whilst electron transfer by tunneling through an electrode/insulator interface contributes to the generation of homo “mirror image” close to the electrodes.
