IEEMA Electrical Insulating Materials (EIM) Division represents all the major stakeholders of the Indian Insulating Materials industry.

IEEMA has been organising International Seminars on various Electrical Equipments and systems such as Cables, Capacitors, Electrical Rotating Machines, Insulating Materials, Energy Meters, Switchgear & Controlgear and Transformers since the eighties. IEEMA Seminars evoke response from major industrialised countries and attract the best engineering minds and thoughts, from India and abroad. These Seminars are a confluence of Industry, Academia, Research, Testing and Standardisation.

The seminar on Insulating Materials is called INSULEC and is held every four years. INSULEC is a forum to share contemporary trends and appreciate unfolding market & technological changes in the area of Insulating Materials and allied equipments & systems. There have been 8 editions of this Seminar since its inception in 1980.

It is a matter of pride for the industry and IEEMA that the papers presented over the years at INSULEC, like application oriented new generation materials, standardisation, life evaluation, to name a few, are representative of the changes that have subsequently taken place in our industry. INSULEC has therefore proven itself as an Innovations-enabler and a harbinger of change in the Industry.

Papers presented at these Seminars over the years have been compiled for your reference. In the initial years these compilations were printed for circulation. With the advent of technology, they were made available in electronic (CD) version as well. Hitherto, bound volume of Papers of a Seminar has been a standalone publication. With a view to help researchers and practitioners in cross referencing, IEEMA has embarked on suitably indexed digitisation of Papers of all INSULEC Seminars to date. Care has been taken to make it user friendly. I do hope you will find it useful and easier to reference. I look forward to your valuable feedback, so that we are able to continuously improve in the coming years.
