    Since ancient times humanity has been harnessing the power of the wind in various forms, such as discovering the planet in sailboats, creating living space in the Dutch polders, or providing bread by flour-grinding windmills. Since 1887 wind has also been used to generate electricity as the shift to renewable energy production is being made [1]. In order to fulfill the long-term carbon emission go... View full abstract»

    The increased use of polymer insulators on the overhead electrical power system has led to many designs of insulators, with many profiles and materials, but the performance has not always been stellar, particularly in polluted and wet environments, and degradation by tracking and/or erosion has been the main reason for this. In tests, such as the tracking wheel, visual inspection of tracking and e... View full abstract»

    In recent years, several documented cases of transformer failures have been attributed to the presence of corrosive sulfur species in the insulating oil [1], [2]. However, all sources of corrosive sulfur in oil have not been completely identified, yet. They can be residuals from the refining process, or they are formed under favorable operating conditions, such as high ambient and operating temper... View full abstract»

  • Computer simulation as an aid in the rating of a transformer on-load tap changer

    The on-load tap changer (OLTC) is a crucial and expensive component of every power transformer. Its primary function is the dynamic adjustment of load voltage to specified levels without interrupting load current. Apart from thermal limitations at each tap position, the main concern in correctly rating an OLTC is the basic impulse insulation level (BIL). The reason for this is that during the stan...

  • The hidden threat to HVDC polymeric insulation at design field: Solitonic conduction

    While HVDC assets are impetuously expanding worldwide, the design of HVDC polymeric insulation systems still contains unknowns. It has been ascertained that space charge plays a fundamental role in DC insulation reliability because of modifications it may induce in the (Poissonian) electric field distribution, especially when heterocharge is formed during voltage application. Heterocharge (charge ... View full abstract»
