Abstract: This experimental investigation explores the effect of high voltage lightning surges on the insulating oil used in the oil filled extra high voltage cables that serve electric power networks worldwide. Using non-uniform electrode configuration, the breakdown voltage and corresponding discharge propagation velocities in oil samples that are doped with trace amounts of 1-Methylnaphthalene are investigated under both polarities of applied stresses in gap spacing of up to 10 mm. Two distinct ranges of additive concentrations are obseived which effect these characteristics. Generally, the positive discharge growth decreases with increase in gap spacing while the negative ones show opposite behaviour. Anomalous behaviour of discharge growth is observed at an optimum concentration of additive, as it attains supersonic velocity which increases with the increase in gap spacing. A correlation between the positive impulse breakdown voltage and the discharge propagation velocity is also established.
