In order to maintain the high standard of living that we as members of todayâ??s society enjoy, we are challenged to find ways to more resourcefully utilize utility assets â?? extend, if possible, their life; minimize the collateral damage to our environment from unexpected failures; and, increase their operating efficiency.? Electrical transformers, both transmission and distribution, are a case in point.? They populate electric utilities, provide the lifeblood to our infrastructure and industries, and, like the rest of us, they arenâ??t getting any younger.? Natural ester fluids, in this case soy oil, provide an elixir of life for these aging assets.? These fluids also provide for a cleaner environment, safer operating conditions, longer asset life, and equipment overloadability.

This presentation offers an overview of the technical situation in the present day transformer business with a special emphasis on the use of biodegradable natural ester fluids in distribution and power transformers.? Design and application economics are discussed with particular emphasis on environmental, fire safety and operating experience.
