High Voltage Power Transformer Paper Insulation Assessment Techniques
MetadataShow full item record
Energized parts within power transformer are isolated using paper insulation and are immersed in insulating oil. Hence, transformer oil and paper insulation are essential sources to detect incipient and fast developing power transformer faults. Several chemical diagnoses techniques are developed to examine the condition of paper insulation such as degree of polymerization, carbon oxides, furanic compounds and methanol. The principle and limitation of these diagnoses are discussed and compared in this paper.
Presented on day 1 in session #3: "Effective Diagnostic Techniques for HV Power Transformers using Furans and Dissolved Gas-in-Oil Analysis".
