Power Line Corona Rings Optimization

Innovative silicon insulators for high power transmission lines have been designed with ANSYS. Our customer wanted to design insulators with lower electrical fields than usually available in the market by optimizing the geometrical shape of the conducting corona rings. The entire design and optimization process was done in ANSYS Workbench by means of a thermal-electric analogy, while a parametric model was used for the geometric optimization. The customer could benefit from an automated workflow in ANSYS Workbench and know-how transfer for the optimization process. A new product line with significant competitive advantage was designed.
