This study sets out to explore the space charge characteristics of high voltage direct current (HVDC) cable grade crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) using different electrode materials and configurations, ranging from sputtered gold to thermally bonded semi-conducting materials. The existence of both homo and hetero charges in HVDC cables is well known; however, the role of semi-conducting materials and the formation of space charge is critical and required more attention. Space charge accumulation at high electric stress was monitored using the pulsed electroacoustic (PEA) technique. Experimental results have shown that charge injection processes take place in all cases and the amount of charge and polarity of the dominated injected charge has significant dependence on the electrode material under the same applied electric field.
