A distribution company in Tucuman, Argentina purchased and installed 13,000 polymeric spacers on their 13.2kV lines. Shortly after the line started operating the maintenance teams observed and reported some unexplained physical changes on the spacers. The testing of the spacers reveled that after a short period of time a large intensity of constant corona that turned into arcing appeared on the spacers until the spacers heated up and melted. This caused changes in the design of the spacers inflicting malfunctioning.
See what happens when the voltage is incremented, how ionization takes place, where does it take place and what happens next. The test was performed using Ofil DayCor Luminar. This kind of test was already performed by the manufacturer, but for the first time it was possible to see where the discharge takes place.
