We have investigated the effect of low-molecular mass species on the space charge behavior such as space charge distribution and electrical conduction of LDPE (low density polyethylene). We also attempted to explain the relationship between the space charge distribution and electrical conduction. The heterocharge, conduction current and effective charge mobility decreased when the low-molecular-mass species in LDPE was removed. It was found that the decrease in conduction current was related to the decrease of heterocharge in LDPE.
