Moisture in Transformer Oil Behavior

Moisture in Transformer Oil Behavior
 – a Deeper Look into a Complex Phenomenon

​​​​​​​​As our understanding of how moisture movement in transformers improves, so does the evolution of how we measure it and what it means to life of the asset.   As a continuation of last year's webinar entitled "Understanding Moisture Dynamics in Power Transformers", in this presentation we will review some of the fundamentals covered previously but also discuss new topics and share new data and insights gained from recent field test results.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Moisture in Transformers background – where does it come from and what effect does it have? 
  • New Data on the Moisture Exchange between Cellulose and Oil
  • Moisture Hysteresis and the Moisture "Cloud"
  • Correlating Online Moisture in Oil Measurement to Cellulose Moisture
  • Benefits of Online Drying of Transformers
  • Best Practices for Moisture and Hydrogen Monitoring
