The aim of this paper is to examine different factors that influence the quality of insulation models high voltage testing results. These factors are related to model geometry and model testing procedures. Model geometry is visually checked, several influencing factors are detected and their influence on el. field calculation results is evaluated using finite element method (FEM) and cumulative method for oilbarrier insulation design. The procedure for model geometry uncertainty estimation is performed using first-order Taylor series approximation. Also, the influence of previous voltage exposure history of a specimen, so-called “memo effect”, is estimated with a cumulative exposure method.
