Corn Oil Performance’s A Bio Cooling Fluid in Electric Distribution Transformer
Engineering and Technology Journal,
2022, Volume 40, Issue 1, Pages 20-30
AbstractBiodegradable (Vegetable) fluids are considered as environmentally friendly fluids and possess an abundant benefit, they are wildly available by means of renewable sources compared to different kinds of mineral-oil. Given the occurrence of environmental pollution and health problems from mineral oils. This paper investigates the effect of utilizing the corn oil for the cooling performing features of distribution electric transformer, and making a comparison with the cooling performance of the electric transformer whith cooling by the commercial mineral fluid. This investigation is done by using the four- ball machine and electric transformers. Each experiment that was executed complies with ASTM D4172-B under different electrical loads (200-1600W). Depending on the outcomes of the four-ball machine and electric transformer, it has been noticed that the corn oil has the adequate cooling behavior compared to the commercial cooling fluid. It maintains the insulation housing between the coils, and maintains the coils when overloaded at peak time.
- Study the thermal and tribological behaviour of the corn oil.
- The bio-lubrication obtained gives a decrease in the value of the Wear diameter.
- Laboratory prototype of electric transformer used for verifying the performance.
