  • To ensure that large high-voltage power transformers will operate reliably for years without requiring unscheduled maintenance, manufacturers thoroughly dry the insulation after manufacture and before commissioning. Using conventional monitoring procedures, it is difficult to establish the residual moisture concentration throughout the insulation. The paper introduces a computational technique which has the potential of calculating accurately the moisture levels in the windings after various… CONTINUE READING
