What is the dielectric breakdown strength?
This depends on the particular dielectric. Each has a different breakdown strength.
Generally, increased moisture levels will lower breakdown strength, especially if the dielectric readily absorbs water. Increasing temperature generally decreases breakdown strength of solid dielectrics. The dielectric strength of some materials may increase with temperature within limited temperature ranges. However, dielectric strength eventually begins to decrease at higher temperatures.
Dielectric loss is basically loss caused due to heating of the dielectric but Dielectric breakdown means permanently destruction of the dielectric strength of the dielectric therby losing its property and hence behaving as a somewhat like conductor.

Generally, dielectric breakdown strength decreases with increasing humidity. In air, exact relationships between dielectric strength and humidity are hard to derive, due to the numerous other variables compounding the relationships (e.g. electrode size and shape, air temperature and pressure).

The dielectric strength refers to the maximum working voltage that a material can withstand without breaking down. At breakdown the electric field frees bound electrons turning the material into a conductor.
INSULATION RESISTANCE: The insulation resistance is a measure of the capability of a material to withstand leakage of current under a Vdc potential gradient. DIELECTRIC STRENGTH: The dielectric strength is a measure of the ability of the material to withstand a large field strength without electrical breakdown, and is usually expressed in volts per mil (.001') or volts per cm of dielectric.
It is the tensile force experienced by cable insulation Answer I think you mean either 'dielectric strength' or 'dielectric strain', rather than 'dielectric stress'. Dielectric strength is a measure of the maximum electric field a dielectric can withstand before breakdown, expressed in volts per metre. Dielectric strain is a measure of the electric flux density of an electric field, expressed in coulombs per square metre.
In SI, the unit of dielectric strength is volts per meter (V/m). In U.S. customary units, dielectric strength is often specified in volts per mil. In physics, dielectric strength 2 meanings: Of an insulating material, the maximum electric field that a pure material can withstand under ideal conditions without breaking down. For a specific configuration of dielectric material and electrodes, the minimum applied electric field that results in breakdown.
Is there any change in the current or voltage coming from the other end of the dielectric after the dielectric breakdown occurs?
Yes. Once dielectric breakdown occurs the circuit is now completed through a conductive breakdown channel in the dielectric. The current injected in one end of the dielectric is matched by the current coming out of the other end.
The dielectric strenght of a transformer represents the maximum voltage permissible to apply across the transformer insulation i.e. between the transformer winding to another part of the transformer, normally the chassis or another winding and without break-down of the insulation ocurring (e.g. arcing). The breakdown voltage of a transformer represents a voltage that exceeds its dielectric strenght and that causes breakdown e.g. arcing across the insulation.

No, these are two unrelated properties of a material.
dielectric strength is tested by transformer dielectric strength oil testing machine. at first, oil which is to be tested is pour near the two electrode. both the electrode should be dipped in oil . then adjust the distance between the electrode .now start the machine.when a sound came from machine then note down the dielectric strength of the oil.
When you say BDV you might mean the dielectric strength of transformer oil. A new transformer oil should have at lest a dielectric strength of 39 KV. from a British standard.Transformer oils used are normally tested using ASTM D877-82 with the KV strength tester using 1" electrodes spaced 0.1" apart and the test voltage increased at 3,000 volts/min until it breaks down. The average Kv obtained after 8 trials is considered the Oil dielectric strength… Read More
One field in which this is helpful is in the manufacture of insulating materials. Dielectric strength determines the strongest electric field an insulator can withstand before it fails. For example, if the insulation around a wire melts or breaks, the insulator's dielectric strength is compromised.
Yes, but when its electrical breakdown exceeds.

Capacitors are named after their dielectrics. So, an 'air capacitor' uses air as its dielectric, a 'mica capacitor' uses mica as its dielectric, and so on. There are lots of different dielectric used to separate the plates of a capacitor, each with different permittivities and dielectric strengths. As the perfect dielectric (i.e. one with both a very high permittivity and a very high dielectric strength) doesn't occur, the choice of dielectric is always a compromise… Read More
Oxid failure is the most common type of ESD damage. When the voltage across a dielectric region excesses its dielectric tolerances, the result is a puncture of the dielectric. Once the dielectric has been punctured, small amount energy will be enough to create a short circuit. A device, after dielectric breakdown, will usually exhibit lower breakdown voltage, increased, leakage current and increased noise but not a catastrophic failure
According to a few charts I was able to find, the most realistic material with the highest dielectric strength happens to be Mica, with dielectric strength of 118.

A 'dielectric' describes a material that supports an electric field and is generally used to describe an insulating material. Two properties exhibited by a dielectric are its permittivity and its dielectric strength. High values of permittivity (abillity to improve capacitance) are desirable for dielectrics used in capacitors, and high values of dielectric strength (ability to withstand voltages) are desirable for insulators but, unfortunately, the two quantities aren't relatated. So, selecting a dielectric is a matter… Read More

Yes, but without air to ionize they will usually be invisible. Even a vacuum has a point of dielectric breakdown.
The dielectric,usually the insulator between the plates of a capacitor, can be overstressed by the application of too high voltages applied to the capacitor plates. The dielectric breaks down and a current flows between the plates until,either they are discharged, or an equilibrium is reached,below the working voltage of the capacitor. If the dielectric is damaged in this process he capacitor must be replaced. Some dielectric material self heal and can recover from an over… Read More

ESD stands for electrostatic discharge, which is a sudden flow of electricity between two charged objects. This is due to contact, an electrical short, or dielectric breakdown.
to concentrate the electric field there, making it easier to breakdown the air dielectric and discharge accumulated atmospheric electric charge.
It is not infinite. At some extreme values electron-positron pairs will start forming rapidly what will result current flow. However from practical standpoint vacuum dielectric strength is limited by field emission from electrodes. Best results are about 40MV/m , what is far worse than some good dielectrics can provide.
The limiting feature of a transformer is the thermal breakdown of the insulating varnish on the wire. Once this breaks down, some of the windings will short circuit, which will lead to rapid breakdown of the transformer. For small high voltage transformers, the windings are carefully laid down with insulating foils between adjacent windings so as to limit dielectric breakdown.
no A2: Not necessarily. Solid plastics or solid glass or ceramic have high dielectric strength but not good thermal insulation. Closed-cell foam has good thermal insulating properties but not as good a dielectric strength as solid--there are pockets of gas or air in it. The D.S. is not much better than using the same volume of gas, alone.
An Electric field stress depends on the mechanical strength of the materials and the stresses that are generated during their operation. During high voltage applications, the dielectric strength of insulating materials are developed when subjected to high voltages.
