Insulation Coordination Studies

The purpose of insulation coordination is to insure that insulation used in an electrical power system is adequate for the environment in which it is applied and to understand the probability of insulation failure under transient conditions. The resulting current levels in the station are quite low relative to direct strikes, but all that is needed to fail insulation is voltage and not current.
