International Journal of Power System Operation and Energy Management


There has been constant development in the energy sector. As the trend of SMART grid is increasing, modern power systems require smarter and reliable switchgear. In this view, the optimum design of switchgear and components acquired prime importance. This can be achieved using various optimization techniques. In this paper, novel optimum design of post insulator is proposed and carried out. The design gives a standard value of capacitance for the indicating system and also solves problem of partial discharge in Indian system. The design is first carried out using 3D MAXWELL software tool for 33kv post insulator which gives drawing in AUTOCAD. The output design parameters obtained in 3D MAXWELL are used for optimization in MATLAB.
