Application of Silicone coatings on porcelain insulators in Poland, a case study

IV th International Scientific Symposium ELEKTROENERGETIKA 01/2007; 1921.


Silicone coatings have been used to improve insulating properties of outdoor insulators under polluted conditions for over 30 years. In Poland this method was used for the first time in 1995. This paper presents Polish experiences and analyzes the usefulness of such coatings. Changes in pollution emission and their influence on outdoor insulation performance were taken under consideration.
