Abstract
The purpose of this Phase-II project is to build upon the promising results achieved during Phase-I, where it was shown that ceramic coatings raised the breakdown voltage and reduced the amount of damage and improved the recovery after a breakdown event for plastic insulators. The main goals of the Phase-II are to (1) coat actual insulators for the Shiva and HPM devices for testing, (2) to optimize the existing ceramic coatings by increasing their thickness, to (3) improve the performance of the existing coatings by testing multilayer coating systems, and to (4) continue our commercialization efforts.
