Abstract
The environment of insulating system in which making switch functions is air and atmospheric pressure. Air is applied as isolation and as extinguisher. Insulating system applying air is characterized by the lowest electric strength to breakdown. Despite the fact that insulating system applying air and atmospheric pressure is characterized by the lowest electric strength to breakdown from among other dielectrics which are applied in insulating systems, it has also some advantages. The air is safe for surrounding, cheap and moreover it retains its physical properties even when the making switch works in low temperatures. The object of theoretical analysis of the area of insulating contact system is to assess a diversity of electric field in contact space. The aim of theoretical analysis is to find in making switch, areas which have the biggest sensitivity to breakdown and determine features which are particularly crucial as regards electric strength.
