Use of Natural Ester Oil as a Dielectric for Power Transformers
Can ester oil be used as an insulating fluid at high voltages? How quickly does it break down in water? What are the combustibility qualities?
Need and Benefit
Many of Reclamations transformers are in close proximity to our rivers. In the event of a catatrophic failure these explode putting burining oil into our rivers. Ester oil is fish friendly and less combustible, having less environmental impacts to our river systems.
