In this paper, we aimed to identify the insulation characteristics and reliability of Epoxy composites, which are widely used as insulation material for electrical & electronic components and electric appliance.
To this end, it was necessary to predict variations of electric field due to the distribution of fillers that must be added by economic and mechanical factors. So, we verified the result using an electric field analysis Simulator. Furthermore, under the condtion of DC voltage application, an dielectirc breakdown test was performed according to ambient temperature changes and the distribution of fillers, and the changes were observed. Three types of specimens were manufactured by adding 0, 50 and 100[phr] filling to Epoxy resin. In all specimens, as temperature was increased, the strength of the dielectric strength was decreased.
When comparing the simulation results with the actual dielectric breakdown test results, we was able to confirm the technical applicability required for Insulation design of electric appliance.
