Determination of thermal conductivity of transformer liquids

Knowledge about the thermal conductivity of dielectric liquids/oils is essential to understanding and predicting the heat transfer in a liquid-filled transformer. Transformer oils perform two crucial functions. First, they electrically insulate the windings and coils to prevent electrical shorting and leaks. Second, they dissipate heat through convection and conduction to protect from overheating the transformer. [...]
