Abstract

Modeling of the partial discharge (PD) process allows a better understanding of the phenomena. In this paper, a simulation model for spherical cavities within a homogeneous dielectric material has been developed. The model is implemented using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software in parallel with a mathematical package. This method provides many advantages over previous PD models because discharge events can be simulated dynamically and the electric field in the cavity can be calculated numerically. The model has been used to study the effect of different amplitudes and frequencies of the applied voltage and simulation results have been compared with experimental measurement results. It is found that certain model parameters are dependent on the applied stress and parameters that clearly affect PD activity can be readily identified, these parameters include; the electron detrapping time constant, the cavity surface conductivity, the initial electron generation rate and the extinction voltage. The influence of surface charge decay through conduction along the cavity wall on PD activity has also been studied.
