Electric field analysis around high-voltage insulators is with an extreme importance during the development of new polymeric insulators design. In this study, the authors combine the finite-element method (FEM) with the design of experiment method to investigate and describe the behaviour of textured silicone rubber insulators. First, a 3D FEM model of different silicone textured surfaces is developed. The maximum electric field is calculated taking into account various available patterns of hemispherical protuberance having different diameters. Then the design of experiment methodology is adopted to reduce the number of simulations and to give more significance to the results. Various influencing factors were considered in this stage. Finally, the analysis of variance is used to evaluate the contribution of the studied factors and their interaction on the total variation of the studied responses.
