Abstract

We present a unified method to estimate current–voltage characteristics of insulators starting from

three stages: 1) computation of trap energy distributions for excess electrons by means of density

transport model which includes trap filling effects and 3) macroscopic integration of the Poisson

voltage characteristics for a material of a given width. The only input to this procedure is the

studies of the current–voltage curve of cross-linked polyethylene.
