Abstract
Breakdown and corona extra-and ultra-high voltage tests are expensive, timeconsuming and require large and extremely costly high-voltage halls, of which there are very few worldwide. Some of these limiting requirements may be minimized by using test cages and by applying reduced-scale tests. In this work the feasibility of performing breakdown reduced-scale tests combined with the use of test cages is analyzed. For this purpose a three-dimensional finite elements based methodology is introduced ...
