Improving measurement techniques of power transformer insulation: A study of the intermolecular interactions between water and vegetable oil based dielectrics

Abstract

The use of water activity probes immersed in the vegetable oil dielectric of a transformer requires a fresh look at the equations, and assumptions, behind the conversion of water activity to concentration of dissolved water. This is important because water negatively affects the effectiveness of insulation. A large volume of work has been performed on… (More)
