The most common cause of high voltage electric machine malfunction is an electrical failure of the insulation system due to extreme partial discharges activity. The paper discusses the methodology for the construction of a low-pass high voltage filter for partial discharge measurement. It focuses mainly on the shape optimization, using an analytical approach with subsequent verification using the finite element method. The experimental verification is given together with important conclusions. View Full-Text
