The product developments that have taken place since John Looms published, in 1988, his excellent book that covered much of this subject have mainly concerned polymeric materials especially silicone rubber. Although the principal modifications made to porcelain and glass insulators over this period are those required for high voltage DC applications, much more has nonetheless been learned about the performance of such insulators under AC energisation. The discussed proposals of some years ago for ultra high voltage transmission systems resulted in the production of very high mechanical strength insulators of the cap and pin design. However, as such proposals generally failed to come to fruition, at least one insulator manufacturer now has a product that is ready, should a market become available in the future.
