High voltage transients in electrical power systems are mainly caused by lightning strikes and switching operations. The high voltage transients above the basic insulation level (BIL) would degrade the electrical insulation of the equipment. In this work, the effect of high voltage impulses on the trend of the surface discharge at the oil-paper interface was investigated. The partial discharge patterns were recorded by the Insulation Condition Monitoring (ICM) system. The HV impulses were generated by a standard 1.2/50 μs HV impulse generator. The measurement results presented in this paper seem to show that surface discharge would cause complete breakdown (continuous flashovers) at the oil-paper interface much faster when the test sample is first aged by HV impulses compared to when it is unaged.
