High voltage device design needs predicting the withstanding voltage to assay conditions as pulses, surges and the DC voltage. There is a great designer needed to have reliable design requirements and well-defined simulation procedure for the development of the apparatus. In this paper, Fuzzy Logic (FL) method is used to model breakdown voltage, based on experimental data generated in the laboratory. Different models are proposed with different membership functions for the FL under both DC voltage conditions. The purpose of this article is to investigate the discharge phenomenon for an air gap-point plan at with insulation barrier between themselves. Obtained results are encouraging. Proving that fuzzy logic is a powerful tool that can be used in predicting the properties of the barrier.
