  1. 1. Long-term performance of polymeric materials in nuclear power plants

    Author : Payam Pourmand; Ulf W. Gedde; Sue Burnay; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; EPDM; thermal ageing; radiation ageing; portable NMR spectroscopy; modulus profiling; condition monitoring; plasticizer migration; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Access to energy is crucial for modern societies to function sustainably. In addition, nuclear power has for a long time been considered a reliable source of energy. However, the majority of nuclear power plants are reaching the end of their service lifetimes, and it is crucial to verify that every component can withstand the added service time. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electric Charges on Insulator Surfaces and their Influence on Insulator Performance

    Author : Hans Sjöstedt; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; EPDM; silicone rubber; material properties; surface potential measurements; outdoor insulation materials;

    Abstract : AbstractPolymeric materials used in high voltage insulation systems are subjected to electric fields which can be strong enough to initiate electrical discharges in the surrounding gas environment. Generated electrical charges may be deposited on polymer surfaces and alter electric field distributions, thus affecting insulation performance and their corresponding breakdown characteristics.

  4. 4. Polymeric Outdoor Insulators - A Long-term Study

    Author : Torbjörn Sörqvist; [1997]

    Abstract : The long-term performance and the material state of polymeric insulators were examined from December 1987 to February 1997. To a large extent the study was conducted at Anneberg field station, on the west coast of Sweden. The project comprised a great number of commercially available polymeric insulators from several prominent manufacturers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Performance of Non-ceramic Insulators in Tropical Environments

    Author : M. A. R. Manjula Fernando; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pollution; high voltage insulator; leakage current; testing;

    Abstract : Non-ceramic insulators have been tested in the field and under laboratory conditions in many countries for more than three decades. Nevertheless, information about their performance in tropical environments is rather limited. Thus, this project was conducted in order to fill the gap. READ MORE
