“Electricity is one of the most crucial discoveries in human history, providing comfort, encouraging inventions, and having huge importance fuelling our everyday life. The most important enabler of all these possibilities are transformers, located on all branches of the power line. Yet, a great number of transformers in use are already at, or close to, the end of their lifecycle. The ongoing integration of renewable energy systems is causing fluctuations to occur more strongly and more frequently, endangering the stability of the system.
Essential to the life expectancy of any transformer is the state of its insulating oil. Not only is it an integral part of the oil and paper insulation system, but it also serves to provide cooling and health indicators through oil analysis. However, over time, the ageing rate of transformer oils, besides temperature, is accelerated by water, oxygen and gas content as well as acids derived from oil degradation. These, along with other contaminants adversely affect the dielectric strength of the oil resulting in a lower Breakdown Voltage (BDV), propagating into a series of operational issues which shorten the service life of the asset.”
