Stay Cool and Insulated – Transformer Oil 101

Stay Cool and Insulated – Transformer Oil 101


EESA is pleased to present Philippe Reboul, Managing Director of Molekulis who will present on how to Stay Cool and Insulated – Transformer Oil 101.

Electrical insulating fluid is often called the blood of transformers.

Not only it has to fulfill its critical insulating and cooling roles but many other essential functions such oxidation stability, maintaining performance at high and low temperatures, maximizing asset life, balancing interaction with other components and also serving as a key messenger in understanding potential issues inside the transformer.

This presentation will also highlight basic physics and chemistry of transformer oils and provide an update on the different types available on the market , the drivers, trends and pitfalls.

Finally, it will review more practical aspects of transformer oil as well as present the recent changes in international standards applicable to Australia and their implications.
