Abstract

This paper presents the experimental outcomes regard to the flashover performance of pin, shackle and disc insulators under contaminated conditions. For making contaminated surface various samples are made like salt, dust, industry pollution and miscellaneous foreign particles of wet and dry conditions as per IEC testing techniques. Moreover, each insulator has been tested under above mentioned conditions. For each insulator its breakdown voltages were measured. After doing performance analysis of different insulators under contaminated condition measurement of breakdown voltages are done with incorporation of real field application of insulators and making analogy with various regions of India.
