      Abstract

      This paper deals with a nanocomposite of magnesium oxide (MgO) added to a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) which was subjected to an electrical treeing degradation. During propagation, there was an addition of tree branches within filled specimen compares to the pure LDPE. If the branches are assumed very closed enough then it may be more appropriately to consider the tree as a uniform conducting medium. This brought to higher local breakdown strength at the tree tip, leads to the suppression of propagation. Furthermore, even the tree had bridged the specimen the breakdown was not immediately to occur. There would be so-called time lag between bridging and final breakdown. LDPE with MgO excelled to suppress the increase of tree parameters than that of LDPE without MgO. The polymer nanocomposite seems to be more resistive against treeing degradation than their base material.
