Abstract

This paper illustrates a new analytical model for determining equivalent salt deposit density (ESDD) on contaminated insulators using wind velocity. The analytical model is derived using the dimensional analysis technique. The values of ESDD from the analytical model are calculated using different values of wind velocity. These results are compared with the experimental results obtained from sites. The analytical results are also compared with the polynomial model output obtained via least-squares analysis of experimental data. It is found that the results obtained by the analytical model are quite consistent with the experimental results for different range of wind velocity.
