AOne common method is based on detection of the degradation products of the insulating oil, typically dissolved gases that are produced as a result of an abnormal dissipation of energy within the transformer.
That is why this oil is also known as mineral insulating oil.
The new contract also includes the continued review of testing and maintenance practices, a comprehensive study of National Grid Saudi Arabia's in-house electrical insulating oil laboratories, and will leverage Doble's experience for the ongoing condition assessment of transformers in the Western Operating Area.
Currently we have a presence at multiple exhibitions and perform seminars at utilities to highlight the importance of the most up-to-date parameters for insulating oil choice, a critical element in the functioning of a transformer.
Among the topics are synthesizing polyglycerol fatty acid ester for insulating oil, the feasibility of hydrothermal nitrogen doping process for enhancing visible light photocatalytic activity of meta-titanic acid powder, synthesizing and characterizing zeolite from glass by hydrothermal processing, preparing copper nanoparticles by pulsed wire discharge in water, and the effect of a pore forming agent on the microstructures and properties of porous molybdenum.

Its characteristics make it a good insulating oil, because it has a high flash point, and is difficult to burn.
Plugged transformer tubes that are unlevel or low on insulating oil.
Velev and his colleagues previously showed that they, could induce minuscule liquid droplets to move, hover, or merge by placing them over a circuit board coated with a film of electrically insulating oil and by controlling the electric currents that flow there.
PCBs were popular for use in insulating oil for capacitors and other products such as florescent lamps in schools.
Advanced transformer monitoring - essentially checking a transformer's insulating oil on-site - has been shown to prevent what utilities call "unplanned failures," through performing dissolved gas analysis (DGA) within these large, complex devices several times each day while they are running.
