Standardization Trend Of Electrical Insulation Materials

- Aug 09, 2019-

In recent years, according to the development of new materials, nano-electrical insulation system, green ecological environment protection, supercapacitor and so on, IEC/TC112 standard has included these international hot technologies in the standardization work direction, to ensure that the relevant testing methods are available for new technologies, new materials and ecological environment protection. The trend of standardization can be summarized as follows:

1. Tracking new insulation materials such as heat shrinkable tubes to ensure the availability of test standards. With the development of new materials and the improvement of material properties, IEC/TC112 is required to continuously track the market to ensure the availability of the corresponding test standards.

2. Develop the test standard for nanometer electrical insulation system. Nanotechnology has led to the development of new manufacturers of electrical insulating materials, which is not applicable to traditional testing methods. IEC/TC112 will carry out standardization work in this regard.

3. In the field of HVDC development, attention should be paid to the standardization of space charge test technology. From AC to DC, IEC/TC112 will pay attention to the potential standardization of space charge test methods.

4. Promote the revision of existing IEC/TC112 standards by using new measurement technology, and promote the advancement and applicability of test methods standards.

5. Taking environmental factors into account in standardization. In some cases, environmental safety requires new testing indicators, such as EARLY-USED chemicals, which may be banned by environmental regulations, and IEC/TC112 will take environmental factors into account in the standard-setting process.

6. Consider incorporating heat-shrinkable sleeves and systems of electrical insulating materials, which are of international interest, into the standardization category, including low-voltage DC distribution systems, biomaterials and systems, green materials and systems;

7. Taking electrochemical systems, including batteries and supercapacitors (EDLCs), as the direction of standardization;

8. Accept the most advanced equipment and systems to be included in the standard at any time.
