The electrical asset oil is subjected to electrical stress and high-temperature variations, as well as chemical pollution, throughout its operating cycle. Without a check on given parameters, power outages might occur. Regular transformer oil testing is critical for maintaining and extending life of the transformer and avoiding major failures. The oil tests for other assets such as Circuit Breakers and Chillers are used to determine their performance. The IEEE standard is used to describe transformer oil's general electrical and physical qualities.
The apparent objective for doing oil testing is to determine the state of the oil, and the oil analysis is meant to shed insight on the condition of the underlying asset.
This is concerned with determining the oil's present physical and chemical status as well as its Remaining Usable Life (RUL). It help us in determining the basic oil specifications and help in analysing with the standards set by NABL
This helps in finding the contamination in the oil which can lead to sludge formation. This helps in analysing the sources of the contamination which can be internal or external. Identifying the existence of damaging pollutants and narrowing down their likely origins helps to take proper measures to increase the usable life of the asset.
The National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) is an autonomous organization registered under the Societies Act 1860 and overseen by the Department of Science and Technology of the Government of India.
The Major advantage of testing through a NABL Accredited lab is that it helps in improvement in the performance of oil tests/calibrations following investigation and identification of the cause(s) of unsatisfactory performance, and the introduction of corrective action to prevent re-occurrence. Also the Staff education, training, and competence & Evaluation of methods, including the establishment of method precision and accuracy of oil test results monitoring by NABL report analysis. This helps in standardized results and reports for improved decision-making.
