    Abstract : The extensive use of power electronics in power systems today gives rise to other voltage waveforms than the conventional 50/60 Hz sinusoidal and consequently other types of electric stress act on high voltage insulating materials. Previous studies has shown that Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) voltages and similar waveforms increase stress in Adjustable Speed Drives (ASD) as compared with sinusoidal waveforms and it has also been shown that partial discharge (PD) activity is intensified during PWM voltages and that rise time of square like pulses affect PD inception voltage.
