This study addresses the dielectric performance of nonpolar hydrocarbon liquids and mineral oils under negative polarity stress. Stopping length for non-breakdown streamers, breakdown voltages and velocities for various pre-breakdown streamer modes have been studied for a selection of model liquids ...

This study addresses the dielectric performance of nonpolar hydrocarbon liquids and mineral oils under positive polarity stress. It is of interest to improve knowledge on how functional properties of dielectric liquids vary, as new brands arrive in the market, and existing standards are unsuited for...

The effect of pressure on positive and negative streamer propagation in a mineral transformer oil is studied in an 80 mm point-plane gap under step voltage. Increased pressure causes reduced stopping length for non-breakdown streamers, higher breakdown voltage, reduced background current, reduced br...

The propagation of positive streamers in a naphtenic transformer oil in an 80 mm point-plane gap has been investigated under an impulse voltage being close to a step voltage and under pressures ranging from 0.1 to 1.7 MPa. As has previously been found in short gap experiments of 1 – 7 mm in various ...

Third mode streamers have been studied in the mineral oil Nytro 10 XN, gas-to-liquid oil Diala S4 ZX-1 and the high viscosity white oil Primol 352, in an 80 mm point-plane gap under step impulse voltage. Third mode streamer velocities were in the range 4–60 km/s. The "acceleration" of the average ve...

A sensitive differential charge measurement technique was used to measure the conduction current from a sharp needle in a needle plane geometry in n-pentane. The current was measured at voltages up to the threshold for streamer inception in n-pentane with a positive needle polarity. The measured cur...

For transformers in service, aging markers from cellulose in oil such as furans, water, methanol and acids are measured for diagnostic purposes. The content of these indicators, measured in oil, may therefore vary with load, temperature, solid and liquid insulation aging, as well as marker stability...

For introducing power converters at ambient pressure at large sea depths, dielectric liquids are proposed as insulation for power electronic converters. This paper presents statistical analysis of short time tests of partial discharge and breakdown voltage on the trench between metallized edges of p...

This report addresses state of the art in the field of transformer ageing and diagnostics, with emphasis on advising end-users on transformer asset management and on transformer specification. The basis is results from two projects on laboratory studies on ageing of mineral oil impregnated cellulose...

Molecular additives i.e. additives with specific molelcular propertie, has been shown to influence breakdown properties of dielectric liquids, in particular lightning impulse characteristics. In this study we investigate the propagation of streamers in a natural ester liquid with and without molecul...
