This book provides a guide to the whole field of high voltage insulators as used in electrical power networks, traction and production. It covers historical development of the shapes - sometimes strange ones - of modern types, describes the principles materials both ceramic and polymeric and their fabrication, explains the physical principles of contamination and flashover, and reviews the mass of data on research and testing.
