Abstract

Condition monitoring of large power transformers is of paramount importance in power systems. One of the most common indicators of transformer aging is moisture content in oil. In this article, a capacitive sensor able to online measuring moisture content is presented. The output of this sensor is recorded using a Frequency Response Analysis (FRA) device. Comparing the FRA results of a degraded oil with a reference FRA test, moisture content can be determined. A prototype sensor has been designed, built and tested. The performance of this sensor was simulated and laboratory tested with different moisture content oil samples. The results confirm that the proposed sensor can determine moisture content in oil. Therefore, it allows estimating oil degradation.
