The main research achievement of Professor M. Ieda was strong pioneering work in the development of polymeric insulating materials and their application to HV power apparatus and cables. As early as 1950, he realized the potential application of synthetic polymers as new insulating materials to electric power apparatus and cables. He did much outstanding research work to clarify the mechanisms of high-field conduction, breakdown and aging of synthetic polymers and also applied it to HV  power apparatus and cables. For example, he made a large contribution to realize the 275 kV (1989) and 500 kV (2000) long-distance CV cable power transmission line in service in Japan.
