Investigation of insulating oil percolation through nano capillaries in electrotechnical pressboard by means of optical registra

The paper presents a measuring station used to measure the percolation of transformer oil by electrotechnical pressboard. Nytro Taurus insulating oil manufactured by Nynas company percolation rate by the Pucaro company pressboard investigation was made. Approximately 60 samples of Pucaro made pressboard, widely used for insulation of power transformers, was measured. Statistical analysis of oil percolation times were performed. The measurements made it possible to determine the distribution of capillary diameters occurring in the pressboard.
