Electrical insulation materials cannot be applied only on the basis of their dielectric strength. Weight scale readings were also helpful to gauge the liquid level, insulation material densities, and other experimental information throughout the test program. The impregnation or immersion ensures that the oxygen content of the air does not affect the insulating properties or enhance the thermal ageing of the insulating material.

In many cases they act as both dielectric insulation and coolant. For practical application, the whole characteristic profile including electrical, mechanical, thermal, physical and chemical properties is relevant because materials in electrical systems and equipment also always fulfil the non-electric functions as “construction materials”. Besides an electroinsulating function, the transformer oil plays a key role in a cooling task, therefore it has to be able to resist to the high temperatures and retain the desired parameters in this condition, too. Noryl is attacked by petroleum products, so knowing the environment which the Noryl part will be exposed to is vital. Seven different samples of oil are tested for their dielectric properties and viscosity and the best one among them is tested with a solid dielectric (epoxy) immersed within it in order to simulate more appropriate conditions of a practical transformer. 0000004324 00000 n Therefore, researchers direct their attention to rene, sunflower oil, etc. From the results, it is known that most of the investigated natural esters have better properties except viscosity. AC breakdown voltages are measured in a horizontally positioned sphere–sphere electrode system according to IEC 60156 specifications. There are many factors that negatively affect the electrical insulation properties of power transformers in its operation. NFs may be applied as a potential substitute for MO in the near future. 0000012742 00000 n Therefore the electric field distribution in the case of applied voltage becomes more homogeneous and thus the breakdown strength of the PP foils increases [39]. Development in the field of liquids dielectrics relates to new materials and new applications. Com-, mercial production of paraffinic-based mineral oil was started, in 1899. Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) is also performed to assess the degradation of both pressboard and oil. If the density of insulation is low, the air or gas voids are comparatively large and this makes for the best insulation for low to medium temperatures where compression and/or vibration is not a factor. Thermal insulation materials fall into the latter category. In this document, we show how to measure the dielectric response of different liquid insulation materials using SPECTANO 100 and the Liquid Test Fixture 16451A from Keysight.

This paper focuses on the use of alternative insulating oil due to the lack of petroleum resources and concern about the environmental issues. Petroleum-based mineral oil has become dominant, insulating liquid of transformer for more than a century for its excellent dielectric and cooling properties. Since long ago, petroleum-based mineral oils have been used as liquid insulating materials.
