Electric field control is aimed at increasing the efficiency of insulation by improving electric field homogeneity. Homogenizing the electric field in the bulk of an insulator and on its surface enables the overall dimensions of insulation systems to be reduced. In this case, the electric field at a solid dielectric surface must not exceed its maximum value on the electrode surface without solid dielectric. This can be achieved by choosing an optimal insulator configuration and using a system of shields and other methods described in the present section.
