ECS Intranet:
Modelling the Aging Processes of Polymeric Insulation using Electroluminescence and Space Charge Measurement Data

The lifetime of polymeric insulation is an area of particular interest due to the large and growing use of underground power cables. Breakdown of this insulation is a heavily researched area and this project aims to develop a better understanding of the aging and breakdown processes, with the use of space charge and electroluminescence data.

Current progress is looking at the Space charge and Electroluminescence phenomena of UV aged Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) films to identify changes in the oxidations effect on charge injection and trapping has on the Electroluminescence emission. (11-09-09)
