Abstract

In selecting adequate insulators for substations at distribution and transmission voltage levels, special measures may be needed in locations exposed to freezing conditions. This first part of the paper describes the environmental and insulator parameters that influence the risk of flashover on station insulators exposed to freezing conditions.
