Abstract: The aim of the “ARTEMIS” project is to investigate the ageing mechanisms for cross-linked polyethylene under thermo-electrical stress and to identify ageing markers, which can be used to carry out diagnostic procedures. A carefully selected set of techniques which can give cross-correlated information on space charge phenomenology and material degradation were used to investigate specimens peeled from reference and aged cables. The paper shows that ageing induces a change in the density and depth of trapping levels, and an increase in the number and size of mesovoids. Interpretation of these results is discussed in terms of physico-chemical modifications, which can affect trap distribution and microstructure.
