Study on Discharge of Separated Water Droplets in DC Field
With the accelerating construction of strong smart grid, and the grid voltage level rising, performance requirements for the electrical insulation of electrical equipment also continue to increase. In terms of the advantages of RTV on antifouling, RTV-based paints coated insulator coating capacity of its flash tolerance can significantly increase, mainly due to RTV coating hydrophobic hydrophobicity and migration. But when the hydrophobic surface is in the fully wet, many small drops of water in the surface will be gathered into big drops of water, and these large droplets will distort the surface electric field of the medium. So the flashover voltage of the hydrophobic surface’s separated water droplets under DC electric field are analyzed comparatively in this paper, while some influencing factors such as different medias and volume of water drops, are introduced in specific experiments, and their effects on the flashover voltage are analyzed; under DC electric field experiment on the surface of hydrophobic and hydrophilic surface flashover voltage drops separation characteristics were studied.
