Abstract

This article models the partial discharge inception voltage (PDIV) as a function of ambient humidity ( H) at various temperatures (Ts) using Schumann's streamer inception criterion (SCSIC) for turn-to-turn insulation, which is the most vulnerable part in inverter-fed motors' insulation system. The Schumann constant (i.e., the natural logarithm of the critical electron number defining the Townsend-to-streamer discharge transition, K) varies with H , showing distinct patterns at low and high Ts. The K equations are derived across a wide range of relative humidity (RH) levels (20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, and 90%) at four Ts (25 degrees C, 40 degrees C, 60 degrees C, and 90 degrees C). These equations can be used in finite element analysis software to predict PDIV under varying H with outstanding accuracy. Additionally, a novel approach is presented for partial discharge (PD) phenomenology under H variations at different Ts using SCSIC-derived streamer inception parameters (SIPs): critical field line length (CFLL), air effective ionization coefficient (alpha(eff)) , PD inception field (E-inc) and firing voltage (V-firing) . Notably, at high Ts (e.g., 90 degrees C), a transition phase emerges concerning RH, leading to significant SIP changes due to the disappearance of a critical region (CritR) in alpha(eff) at specific electric field intensities. The developed humidity-dependent PDIV model supports insulation designers in achieving PD-free designs that account for H variations and sheds light on SIP variations concerning H changes.
