A comparative study: Aging behavior of mineral and ester liquids

Comparing mineral and ester oil aging behavior Electrical, thermal, mechanical, and chemical stress leads to the aging of insulating liquids.¬†¬†Breakdown of the hydrocarbon chain of transformer liquids generates soluble gases and a colloidal suspension. This suspension aids the further oxidation of the oil. Oxygen contributes to the formation of soluble oxidation products as well as…
