Stress grading (SG) layer in cable terminations limits the critical electric field and properties of SG materials are important issues which have to be considered during manufacturing and selecting procedure. In this paper, two different types of (SG) materials are analyzed by both theory and test. According to the applied theory, important parameters as: electrical resistivity, breakdown voltage and thermal conductivity are determined by experiments. Experimental steps are defined in the paper with which theory and experiments are matched together to complete the investigation. The paper discusses electro-thermal breakdown theory and quality of two different SG layers based on the test results. The theory and experimental procedure can be used for prediction of breakdown voltage in cable terminations. The employed method is useful for qualifying the cable terminations by users who want to buy and install heat shrink cable terminations.
