Experience with and Application Guide for Composite Line Insulators

This Technical Brochure summarises specific topics of current knowledge in the field of composite insulators. Due to the wide range of applications and the experience gained, the main focus is on line insulators, mainly in suspension and tension applications. However, some technical content can also be applied to post and apparatus insulators. The Working Group members from utilities, manufacturers and researchers provided technical and practical examples from many fields, which have shown the relevance of the safe operation of composite insulators.

Overhead lines

This Technical Brochure has been created by a Working Group from the CIGRE Overhead lines Study Committee which is one of CIGRE's 16 domains of work.
The field of activities of Study Committee B2 covers design, construction and operation of overhead lines. This includes the mechanical and electrical design of line components (conductors, ground wires, insulators, accessories, supports and their foundations), validation tests, the assessment of the state of line components and elements, maintenance, refurbishment
and life extension as well as upgrading and uprating of existing overhead lines.
