The objective of this work is to investigate the influence of high permittivity nanoparticle on resistance to water tree growth in XLPE nanocomposites and indentify their weight percentage for improvement in properties. The nanocomposites based XLPE with suitable nanofillers would be prepared and evaluated for ageing behavior to improve the life of power apparatus used in the high voltage underground power cable insulations. It is proposed to develop simulation models to predict the electrical field distribution and water treeing phenomenon in the nanocomposite using Finite Element method (FEM). Based on the studies, suitable nanofiller or combination of nanofillers and a suitable composition of the nanocomposites would be identified for optimum performance of the insulation. The inception and growth of water trees in the nano dielectrics would be investigated and correlated with the theoretical studies based on simulation. © 2017 IEEE.
