Transformer oil – Physico-chemical properties – water


This work is devoted to study the influence of water content on the physico-chemical properties of a naphtenic mineral oil used in MV and HV power transformers. The investigated parameters are breakdown voltage, relative permittivity εr, dissipation factor (Tanδ) and resistivity. Three samples of oil are considered: The first one is a non treated new oil while the second is taken from a one year normal operating transformer and the third is extracted from a 15 years old operating transformer.
