Arcing horns bushing insulator

Arcing horns protect bushings in case of the overvoltage.

Problem Type: electrostatics.

Geometry: 3D import.

bushing insulator arcing horns 3D model

Relative permittivity of air ε0 = 1,
Relative permittivity of insulator εr = 6,
HV = 6 kV (RMS).

Calculate electric field stress distribution along the bushing insulator surface and in the spark gap.
