It is evident that the number of studies on the use of nanomaterials in power engineering has been steadily increasing [1]-[5]. Although the first commercial applications of nanomaterials, such as partial-discharge-resistant enamel wires, SF6-free medium-voltage switchgear, and HV dc crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) cables, are being actively promoted [6]-[8], the power engineering industry has significantly lagged behind the automotive and aerospace industries in the use of nanotechnology materials in their products.
