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…

A bit of an intro

I am very excited to start this project as it has been a dream for a long time… The compiling of various topics in a central location, hopefully, to serve as a reference source to many maintenance and technical personnel in the distribution and power transformer industry. Various articles would be incorporated over time that…
