This article discusses the application of dielectric frequency response for the analysis of the insulation in MV, HV and EHV instrument transformers. Overall condition assessment of instrument transformers should not be limited to the analysis of the electro-magnetic circuit; it must also include a reliable method to analyse the insulation of instrument transformers.

Dielectric response measurements for the moisture and oil conductivity assessment of transformers are well understood, internationally accepted and growing in use. Of the two principal dielectric response methods, an AC method called Dielectric Frequency Response (DFR, also Frequency-Domain Spectroscopy, FDS) is preferred due to its robustness against noise. The time requirement of a DFR measurement is lengthy compared to that of other electrical test methods. An earlier approach to accelerate test time combined DC (time domain) and AC (frequen...

Water is a threat to the insulation of oil (or ester) insulated power transformers. It leads to reduced breakdown strength of the oil and an accelerated aging of the cellulose insulation. Dielectric frequency response analysis is a suitable and accurate way to assess the water content of the insulation and it helps to determine the condition and remaining lifetime of the transformer. Prior drawbacks of this technology, such as long measurement times and complex assessment, can be eliminated using modern software. The polarization depolarization...
