Abstract

Frequency domain spectroscopy has been widely used to monitor the condition of insulation system in power transformers. For a core type of transformer, a simplified XY model of a duct has been developed which allows one to examine the contribution from oil, barrier and spacer to the overall dielectric measurement. In the present paper, we have constructed a 3D model of the duct to investigate the effects of degree of polymerization, temperature and geometry on the results such as dissipation factor and complex permittivity. The results are compared with the X-Y model so the accuracy of the simplified model can be evaluated. It reveals that the major differences between X-Y and 3D models lie in the lower frequency region and the difference is varied with the effects of degree of polymerisation, temperature and geometry of the insulation. As the dielectric response in the low frequency region is often used to estimate the moisture, the simplified X-Y model may result in potential error in estimation of moisture content in the oil-paper insulation system.
