    Abstract: The current research aims to study the influence of loading Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles on the dielectric, thermal and mechanical properties of the commercial Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) used as the main insulation in power cables. Using the concept of composite, XLPE/TiO2 nanocomposites samples were prepared by the melt blending met... Show More
