  • Nanodielectrics - How Much Do We Really Understand? [Feature Article]

    This article aims to provide an introductory overview of the topic of nanocomposites, with a particular emphasis on their use in electrical applications in which their dielectric response is likely to be of importance. Composites are widely used engineering materials because of the enhancement in properties that can result from combining a number of distinct components. Reducing the size of the filler particles into the submicron range can overcome such problems and influence combinations of properties in a complex and often non-intuitive manner. It is this that has resulted in the rapid expansion of nanocomposites research in recent years. View full abstract»

    This article discusses about the abnormal or faulty operating condition of premature power generator insulation failures that can be classified as: design failures, material failures, manufacturing failures and maintenance failures. The final failure of the mica insulation is usually caused by electric breakdown through a tree channel. Formation and propagation of trees in the insulation therefore reflect the aging process of the insulation. View full abstract»

  • Asset-Management of Transformers Based on Condition Monitoring and Standard Diagnosis [Feature Article]

    In this paper, a methodology is developed to use data acquisition derived from condition monitoring and standard diagnosis for rehabilitation purposes of transformers. The interpretation and understanding of the test data are obtained from international test standards to determine the current condition of transformers. In an attempt to ascertain monitoring priorities, the effective test methods are selected for transformer diagnosis. In particular, the standardization of diagnostic and analytical techniques are being improved that will enable field personnel to more easily use the test results and will reduce the need for interpretation by experts. In addition, the advanced method has the potential to reduce the time greatly and increase the accuracy of diagnostics. The important aim of the standardization is to develop the multiple diagnostic models that combine results from the different tests and give an overall assessment of reliability and maintenance for transformers.

  • Interaction between Insulating Paper and Transformer Oil: Bacterial Content and Transport of Sulfur and Nitrogen Compounds [Feature Article]

    There were variations between different insulating papers, but all contained significant amounts of sulfur. The sulfur showed little migration and it is therefore less likely that transformer paper will contribute, in a significant degree, to the amount of sulfur found in transformer oil in service. Thermally upgraded qualities of transformer paper are treated with different nitrogen-containing compounds. Therefore, the clear increase of nitrogen content in oil exposed to thermally upgraded paper suggests that migration from transformer paper can contribute considerably to the amount of nitrogen-containing substances found in transformer oil in service.
