Paper Abstract

Uniform dispersion of small amounts of nanofillers into Polypropylene (PP) base polymer have shown to improve the dielectric properties such as Partial Discharge (PD) resistance and breakdown strength (BDS). A comparative analyses of the effect of addition of natural and synthetic nanofillers on the PD characteristics and the BDS prior to and after aging with PD have been performed. Results indicate that addition of both type of fillers significantly reduce maximum PD magnitude (Qmax). The Weibull characteristic BDS magnitudes were observed to improve with addition of nanofillers.
