Silicone elastomers exposed to electrical discharges can be rendered hydrophilic, and the loss of water repellency is related to the energy level and number of the discharge pulses on the surface. However, the silicone surface has the unique ability to recover the hydrophobicity and enhance the performance of a polymer insulator. Most of the studies of the(More)
The functional thermal evaluation of test transformers insulated with silicon fluid is described. Studies have shown that polydimethylsiloxane fluids maintain good electrical properties at elevated temperatures, but system evaluation is required to determine their capability in a transformer. A transformer test facility meeting the requirements of IEEE(More)
