How To Achieve Dielectric Strength: The Ultimate Guide

What is dielectric strength? This may be a question that you have heard before but are unsure of the answer to.

What should I know about this?

Dielectric strength is a material’s ability to withstand an electrical field. It is measured in volts per meter and is determined by a material’s resistance to dielectric breakdown. The higher the dielectric strength, the better the material will withstand an electrical field.

There are several factors that affect this strength. The most common are temperature, humidity, and voltage. As the temperature increases, dielectric strength decreases. This is due to increased molecular activity. Humidity also affects this strength by increasing moisture content in the air. This can cause insulation materials to deteriorate over time. Voltage affects this strength because it creates an electric field that can break down molecules in a material.
