More about Transformers

The weakest link in the transformer is  Cellulose !

Condition of Cellulose depends upon Moisture, Temp and Oxygen.

Due top weak Cellulose, Partial Discharge  and creepage failures occur.

There is something called piper chart (H2O in paper Vs H2O in oil)

water in paper increases parabolically with water increase in oil.

                              Oil                            Paper
New T/F                  1                               1000
Old T/F                   1                                  500

 A typical 220 KVA T/F will have 56 T oil and 6 T paper.
