Electric Field Optimization

ABSTRACT The electricity supply system nowadays is characterized by two aspects: (1) high voltages at both transmission and distribution levels and (2) distribution of electric power in densely populated areas. Electric field distribution and the design of insulation system is affected by both these aspects. The higher voltage levels cause higher stresses in the insulation system, whereas the supply of power to populated regions demands compactness of the power equipment, which in turn increases the stresses within the insulation system of the equipment. Critical domains of high-voltage arrangement, which will have high field concentrations, cannot be designed by simple bodies such as spheres, rings or cylinders, ...
