Electrical Treeing in Silicone Rubber
Electrical treeing has been widely studied in a range of polymeric materials. In these investigations, the morphology and PD patterns associated with the growth of electrical trees in a model transparent silicone rubber were investigated using a new system recently developed at Southampton. With increasing voltage the trees became more complex in appearance but nevertheless grow more rapidly. As the tree evolves the PD pattern becomes more intense which may provide a method of monitoring the extent of treeing in opaque samples. Raman studies indicate that treeing and breakdown channels are hollow, carbonaceous entities, a finding consistent with other studies.

Abstract

Electrical treeing has been widely studied in a range of polymeric materials. In these investigations, the morphology and PD patterns associated with the growth of electrical trees in a model transparent silicone rubber were investigated using a new system recently developed at Southampton. With increasing voltage the trees became more complex in appearance but nevertheless grow more rapidly. As the tree evolves the PD pattern becomes more intense which may provide a method of monitoring the extent of treeing in opaque samples. Raman studies indicate that treeing and breakdown channels are hollow, carbonaceous entities, a finding consistent with other studies.
