Effect of humidity on flashover voltage of three kinds of insulators is experimentally studied for about three years under natural humidity condition. It is found that the existing IEC humidity correction seems to be proper for most insulators regardless of the kinds of applied voltage but that change may be necessary for a cap and pin insulator unit under the application of positive and negative lightning impulse voltages.
