Major direct and indirect causes of air pollution include energy generation and consumption. Emissions from power plants can pollute the air over a long-distance and have wide-ranging consequences. Data on the effects of power generation on air pollution provide a wealth of evidence. As a result, research into power generation and related phenomena are crucial. The Partial Discharge (PD) phenomenon causes insulation degradation, which, if left unattended, may trigger electrical breakdown due to repetition of PD events. PD modeling is crucial as to develop a PD measuring and detection system to assess the condition of the insulation system. A Finite Element Solver program is being used in this project to simulate the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) model. Through the modeling process, electric field distribution in a cavity and a dielectric material can be observed, which influences the PD characteristics under high applied voltage. PD phenomenon is further understood by implementing parameters such as free-electron supply, inception field, and extinction field using MATLAB with Livelink and simulated through three different voltage steps, namely 10kV, 14kV, and 18kV.
