General Report CIGRE Session 1998 Study Committee 15, Materials for Electrotechnology

Abstract

This is a report of the general Session for Study committee 15, Materials for electrotechnology, which took place at the CIGRE meeting in Paris, on September 2, 1998. There were fifty-three prepared formal presentations and twenty-two spontaneous discussions generated from the nineteen papers which were submitted. The papers and the general discussion emphasized the importance of diagnostics, the monitoring of equipment in operation, and the need to understand the mechanisms of degradation and aging of dielectric materials in order to interpret measurement results. Illustrative diagnostic examples came from several areas--return-voltage-measurement for moisture in paper, partial discharges, and breakdown-failure prediction. The session underscored that an improved understanding of insulating materials and their limits is key for the improved performance and life for virtually all power equipment.
