Types of Insulators - Overhead power line Insulator

Some of basic Information about Insulator¬† Different types of insulators are used to prevent the flow of current to the earth from the transmission line. Insulators play an important role in the successful operation of the line. In bare conductors, primary insulation is provided by the air between conductor to conductor and between conductors to earth. At the point of mechanical support, insulators are provided. In low voltage, a line such insulators are relatively simple but at Extra High Voltage and extra High voltages they are complex. Requirement of an…
