This paper illustrated the electrical characteristic of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) by adding an alumina trihydrate (ATH)filler At concentrations vary from 0% to 40%.
Multiple Regression Analysis (MRA) was used to find the best suitable curve between the percentages of ATH filler and the Break down Voltages (kV/mm).
