Performance evaluation of transformer oil using uv-visible spectrophotometer

Radha Karthik, Thangaswamy Sree Renga Raja, Sundaram Sudalai Shunmugam


To ensure reliable operation of Power transformer, condition monitoring of transformer becomes obligatory. In this paper, condition assessment of transformer oil under various working conditions is performed using UV-visible spectrophotometer. Test samples include both laboratorial prepared ones and those obtained from in service transformers.  An index table of spectral responses for various faults which predominantly occur in the transformer is developed. The index table will acts as a reference for spectral response of faulted transformer oil. In this paper, an attempt has been made to determine the quality of transformer oil using their spectral response characteristics.
