dc.description.abstractThis study investigates the influence of moisture, temperature and diverse oil properties on the frequency domain response of pressboard insulation samples, which are impregnated with four different insulating liquids including two commercially available natural esters, one synthetic ester and mineral oil. Measurements are performed over a wide frequency range from 0.1 mHz to 1 kHz at variable moisture contents and temperatures (35, 55 and 75°C). It has been found that dielectric response is extremely sensitive to moisture content regardless of the type of impregnated liquid. Furthermore, dielectric response behaviour of ester impregnated pressboard insulation is qualitatively resembles to that of mineral oil impregnated pressboard which contains two distinct relaxation processes including Quasi-DC (q-dc) conduction features at low frequencies, and loss peak behaviour at mid frequency range. This paper proposes that the loss peak arises due to cooperative microscopic motion in water cellulose mixed phase dipole clusters together with the microscopic level interfacial polarization occurring at the interface of oil filled cavities. It is also discussed the q-dc process in pressboard insulation due to the charge transport between water and oil cavity based charge clusters through a percolation network of water molecules and hydroxyl groups along the cellulose fiber wall. In order to provide better understanding on charge transport and polarization phenomena in oil impregnated pressboard insulation, this paper also proposes an equivalent circuit, which is mainly derived based on Dissado- Hill (DH) cluster framework theory. Furthermore, this study has used activation energy to characterize the temperature dependent dielectric response of pressboard impregnated in mineral oil, natural esters and synthetic esters.
