  • Statistical analysis of AC and DC breakdown voltage of JMEO (Jatropha methyl ester oil), mineral oil and their mixtures

    This paper reports on a comparative study of statistical Breakdown Voltage (BDV) in a natural ester oil namely jatropha curcas methyl ester oil (JMEO) extracted from the fruit seeds of jatropha curcas plants, mineral oil (MO) and two JMEO/MO oil mixtures (namely (50%JMEO+50%MO) and (80%JMEO+20%MO)) using spherical electrode under DC and AC voltages. It is shown that the average AC breakdown voltage of JMEO is higher than that of mineral oil. Meanwhile it is similar under DC voltage. The statistical analysis shows that all large data groups (n&gt;40) for AC and DC breakdown voltages of JMEO, MO and oil mixtures obey to the normal distribution law. This is proved using Shapiro-Wilk test, skewness and kurtosis values. It also observed that AC mean breakdown voltage of JMEO is higher than that of oils mixture (50%JMEO+50%MO) and MO, but it is similar with oils mixture (80%JMEO+20%MO). AC mean breakdown voltage of MO is the lowest one. DC mean breakdown voltages of JMEO, MO and oil mixtures (50%JMEO+50%MO) are similar. In contrast, DC mean breakdown voltage of oils mixture (80%JMEO+20%MO) is the highest one.

  • Effect of SOI LDMOS Epitaxial Layer Thickness on Breakdown Voltage

    Power semiconductors are commonly used in LED bulbs and computer transformers, and are also widely used in industrial equipment, automotive electronic ignition systems, mobile phone battery charging and communication equipment. Power semiconductors are also often used as protective switches as the first goalkeeper for electrical appliances. This paper mainly studies the effect of the epitaxial layer thickness on electric characteristics and finds the suitable epitaxial layer thickness to achieve breakdown voltage more than 700 V to ensure the safety of device usage. The power semiconductors simulated in this study achieve the static breakdown voltage of 805 V for the device based on the epitaxial layer (~15 μm) on SOI substrate. The device based on the epitaxial layer (~3 μm) on SOI substrate achieves the static breakdown voltage of 751 V and reaches the dynamic breakdown voltage of 704 V under 5 V gate voltages.

  • Effect of lightning impulse voltage to the pd activity and breakdown voltage of liquid insulation

    Partial Discharge (PD) and breakdown voltage measurements are very effective methodes in monitoring and diagnosing the condition of insulation of a high voltage equipment. There are many methods in measuring PD in liquid insulation, one of them is by making use of RC Detector. In this research the system scheme and the technique of measuring PD using this method will be presented. The cases that become the focus of the research are PD activity and the breakdown voltage of mineral oil under lightning impulse stress. The waveform of lightning impulse voltage is set according to the IEC standard. The PD activity and the breakdown voltage on samples receiving different impulse ageing are compared.

  • Statistical analysis of oil insulation breakdown voltage

    Liquid or oil insulation are widely used in electrical power apparatus. The breakdown characteristic of oil insulation is statistically analysed. In order to obtain adequate information, suitable statistical distribution function needs to be identified to map with breakdown voltage data set. In this work, breakdown test of oil insulation is carried out with certain ramp rate i.e. rate of rise of voltage. The experimentally obtained breakdown voltage data was mapped with normal and Weibull distribution. The statistical distribution of data is adopted to obtain information about the breakdown characteristics of oil insulation. The normal distribution is used to estimate mean value, standard deviation, whereas scale parameter, shape parameter are estimated using Weibull distribution. Skewness factor is estimated for normal distribution and is seen to be of non-zero value. This non-zero skewness represents asymmetric distribution of experimental data. Weibull distribution being asymmetric in nature fits well with the experimental data. The Weibull distribution provides significant information about the breakdown mechanism as well as characteristic breakdown voltage magnitude.

  • Investigation on the lightning breakdown voltage of Palm Oil and Coconut Oil under non-uniform field

    The increasing interests on the Palm Oil (PO) and Coconut Oil (CO) as a potential alternative for dielectric insulating fluid in transformers encourage a number of researches on different aspects of these oils. Among the common areas under study is the lightning breakdown voltage. In this paper, the lightning breakdown voltage of PO and CO is examined. The type of PO used in this study is Refined, Bleached and Deodorized Palm Oil (RBDPO) Olein. The testing was carried out under non-uniform electric field using needle-sphere electrodes configuration. The influence of the testing methods, rising-voltage and up-and-down on the breakdown voltages are investigated for both types of oils. It was found that the lightning breakdown voltage performance for some of the RBDPO is comparable to Mineral Oil (MO).

  • Influence of metallic particles on the breakdown voltage of insulating oil at AC and DC voltage

    The insulating performance of transformer oil is vulnerable to metallic particles, especially oil used in HVDC converter transformers. The electric field distribution in converter transformer insulating oil is different from that in traditional AC transformer insulating oil, so extra attention should be paid to the influence of metallic particles on its breakdown voltage. This paper investigated the influence of metallic particles on the breakdown voltage of insulating oil at AC and DC voltage. The breakdown voltages of insulating oll contaminated with iron particles and copper particles of different sizes and particle numbers were measured at AC and DC voltage, respectively. The Weibull distribution was adopted to characterize the breakdown voltage data and the relationship between the breakdown voltage and particle numbers was obtained. The effect of particle diameter was also investigated. The experiment results showed that the breakdown voltage of the insulating oil decreases with the increase of the particle number. More importantly, the breakdown voltage at DC voltage is smaller than that at AC voltage and the insulating oil contaminated with iron particles of bigger median diameter has a smaller breakdown voltage.

  • DC breakdown voltage of solid dielectric barrier under non-uniform electric field

    This paper presents the DC breakdown characteristics of a non-uniform electric field effected by the insertion of solid dielectric barrier under in air. The investigations have been done experimentally and simulated in order to study the breakdown phenomenon of solid dielectric barrier. The complicated breakdown voltage characteristics are studied experimentally under both positive and negative DC voltage polarity. The solid dielectric barriers are made of Polymethymethaacrylate (PMMA) with different thickness of 3, 5 and 8 mm, and the experiments are done under air pressure range between 0.5-3 bars. According to the experiments, the results are divided into three parts. The first part is the effect of pressure. The breakdown voltage increased when air pressure are increased. The second part is the simulation results of electric field distribution with solid dielectric barrier, which is numerically analyzed by Finite Element Method (FEM). It can be described that in case of the thicker solid barrier, the electric field stress at the contact point is lower than the one with thinner barrier. The third part is the effect of polarity on breakdown voltage. The results show the breakdown voltage increased when air pressure are extended and the intersection between the positive and negative DC breakdown curves at the pressure of about 1.5 bars. At the pressure lower than 1.5 bars, the negative DC breakdown voltage is lower than the positive case. In the other hand at the pressure higher than 1.5 bars, the negative DC breakdown voltage is higher than the positive case.
