  • Comparison of DC conductivity of the insulating oil and moisturized electrical pressboard impregnated with insulating oil

    In the paper presents compares the DC conductivity of the insulating oil manufactured by Nynas and electrical pressboard Pucaro companies impregnated with the same insulating oil with different moisture contents. The study of conductivity for both materials were made for the measuring temperature in the range of 20 °C to 80 °C and measuring voltages in the range from 20 V to 1000 V. In the Arrhenius plots for both materials were been performed linear approximations of experimental results. On the basis of Arrhenius plots for the oil and the sample for the pressboard, for all measuring voltages, the value of the activation energy value of the DC conductivity and the determination coefficient R2was determined. The value of the determination coefficient close to one indicates the high accuracy of conductivity measurements. Comparing the activation energy value of the DC conductivity for insulating oil and pressboard impregnated with the same oil, it can be concluded that the conduction in pressboard is not caused by the presence of oil in the solid component of the paper-oil insulation.

  • Study on the Analysis and Diagnosis of Dissolved Gases in Camellia Insulating Oil

    Recently, as a kind of transformer oil with lots of outstanding characteristics such as high ignition point, reproducible, and natural degradation, vegetable insulating oil has becomes more and more popular in the oil-filled transformers. Thermal ageing as well as thermal and electrical faults, which can lead to the decomposition of insulating oil and insulating paper, will occur in operating transformers, then dissolved gases are formed and reach equilibrium in oil through diffusion process. In this paper, camellia oil as sample oil, thermal ageing as well as thermal and electrical faults simulation experiments of transformers were conducted, main characteristic gases decomposed by camellia insulating oil were obtained, and the changing rules of gas content with the changing of thermal ageing time, thermal fault temperature and discharge energy were also analyzed. Which indicated that if we increase the thermal ageing time, thermal faults temperature and discharge energy, the decomposition processes of camellia insulating oil could also be accelerated. And also the decomposition processes of camellia insulating oil and insulation paper under thermal and electrical stress were analyzed. Simulation results explained the gas production rules of thermal ageing and thermal faults as well as electrical faults of camellia insulating oil at microcosmic level. The result of above study provides theoretic support for condition assessment and operating maintenance of vegetable insulating oil-filled transformers, and also has great theoretical reference value and practical guiding significance for ensuring safe operation of vegetable insulating oil-filled transformers.

  • Influence of copper particles on breakdown voltage and frequency domain spectroscopy characteristics of vegetable insulating oil

    In order to obtain the influence of metallic particles on the insulating performance of vegetable insulating oil, copper particles were chosen to contaminate the vegetable insulating oil. The AC breakdown voltage of rapeseed insulating oil with different copper particle concentrations was measured. The dielectric properties i.e. relative permittivity, dielectric loss tangent and volume resistivity of rapeseed insulating oil versus frequency with various copper volumetric concentrations were also measured by dielectric spectrometer. The characteristics of the breakdown voltage and the three dielectric parameters versus frequency were analyzed. Measurement results show that the AC breakdown voltage of vegetable insulating oil decreases with the increase of copper particle concentration, and it decreases faster with increasing copper particle concentration when the size of cooper particles is larger. The relative permittivity and dielectric loss tangent increase with increasing copper volumetric concentration, and the volume resistivity decreases. The difference is more obvious at low frequencies. Copper particles in the vegetable insulating oil damage its insulating properties, therefore it is necessary to pay attention to the metallic particle concentration in vegetable insulating oil when applied in transformers.

  • Effect of acid value on breakdown performance of vegetable insulating oil under lighting impulse

    Vegetable insulating oil is fire-resistant and environmental-friendly liquid dielectrics, which offers excellent electrical and physiochemical properties and has been successfully used in distribution transformers. Vegetable insulating oil differs from mineral insulating oil in their molecular structures, components, physicochemical and electrical properties. This lead to that the two kinds of oil have different acid composition. At the same time, vegetable oil-paper insulation will be affected by many factors such as heat, moisture and oxygen, which makes acidic substance produce more complex. Therefore, this paper explores the change law of acid value in vegetable insulating oil under the condition of hydrolysis, oxidation and aging, studies the influence of different acid value on breakdown performance on positive and negative polarity in small gaps under lighting impulse. The results show that acid value has a significant impact on negative polarity, the breakdown voltage will decrease with the increase of acid value, while it has no obvious influence on positive polarity in small gaps under lighting impulse.

  • Influence of nonmetallic particles on the breakdown strength of vegetable insulating oil

    The insulating performance of transformer oil is vulnerable to minute particles. As the vegetable insulating oil is increasingly used in transformers while its physical and chemical properties are different from those of mineral oil, special attention should be paid to the influence of particles on its dielectric strength. This paper investigated the influence of nonmetallic particles, namely carbon particles and cellulose particles on the breakdown strength of vegetable insulating oil. The breakdown voltages of vegetable insulating oil and mineral insulating oil contaminated with carbon particles or cellulose particles of different sizes and particle numbers were measured, respectively. The relationships between the breakdown voltages and particle numbers were obtained. The experiment results showed that the breakdown strengths of the vegetable insulating oil decrease with the increase of the particle number, and the breakdown voltages and the denary logarithm of particle numbers approximately satisfy the linear correlation, which is the same for mineral insulating oil. More importantly, the vegetable insulating oil is less sensitive to the particles compared to mineral insulating oil in terms of breakdown voltage, which might be due to its higher viscosity. Therefore, different standard of particle limit should be established for vegetable insulating oil.

  • Impact of insulating oil degradation on the power transformer frequency response analysis

    Frequency Response Analysis (FRA) has become a reliable tool to detect mechanical deformation within power transformers. Many researchers have investigated the impact of various mechanical winding and core deformations on transformer FRA signature using either simulation analysis or practical testing to establish a standard code for FRA signature interpretation. A few of them however, have given attention to the impact of power transformer insulating oil degradation on the transformer FRA signature. This paper investigates the effect of insulating mineral oil degradation on power transformer FRA signature. In this regard, the physical geometrical dimension of a single-phase transformer filled with insulating mineral oil is simulated using three dimensional finite element analysis to emulate the real transformer operation. Transformer FRA signature is measured and analysed with various health conditions of the insulating oil. Results show that, insulating oil degradation has a significant impact on the transformer FRA signature.

  • The compatibility tests between vegetable insulating oil and mineral insulating oil

    Vegetable insulating oil shows good performance in electric, high anti-aging ability and environmental protection. Thus it is considered as a promising substitute for mineral insulating oil. In order to the wide spread application of vegetable oil in large power transformers, this paper designed the compatibility tests between vegetable insulating oil and mineral insulating oil. The changing rules of thermal aging characteristics in insulating oil influenced by different proportions were obtained. The changing rules of acid value, moisture content and breakdown voltages of mixed oil influenced by different proportions were analyzed. Experimental results indicate that the molecular composition of insulating oil have a great influence on the physical, chemical and electrical properties of oil. The more of vegetable insulating oil in mixed insulating oil, the higher acid value and moisture content of oil is. Vegetable insulating oil and mineral insulating oil has good compatibility in thermal aging tests.
