MeOH R&D Phase 1 report

IERE is carrying out a 4 year joint R&D project on power transformer life diagnosis. The objective of this project is to analyze a collection of specific winding insulation paper material extracted during post-mortem dismantling of selected power transformers and to establish a robust degradation model by correlating the concentrations of temperature-corrected methanol-in-oil with the real winding paper degradation. Six members are participating to this project now.
