This research shows that all of the insulation characteristics (insulation resistance, partial discharge, dissipation factor, and alternating leakage current) of HV motor become worse at high temperature. It is also shows that partial discharge and insulation resistance are reduced at moisture absorption. Therefore, to accurately analyze the insulation degradation trend, it is necessary that those tests always be conducted under the same conditions (temperature and moisture content).
