Partial Discharges (PD) behavior during ageing of the insulation systems exhibits variations that depend on changes in gas filling characteristics and surface condition. In this article, numerical simulations of temperature and pressure behavior in an air-filled spherical cavity within a homogenous solid dielectric material due to PD activity are presented. An Analytical-Finite Element Analysis simulation approach was implemented in MATLAB and results exhibit reasonable agreement with
