Transformer Oil Uses : Thing You Needs To Know About It

Transformer oil is a special kind of lubricant having exceptional electrical insulating capabilities. Due to its excellent insulating properties, it is also called insulating oil. It does not become unstable even at high temperatures and is, thus, used in electrical power transformers where it dissolves heat and prevents arcing. On submerging the cores and windings of a transformer into a lubricant, insulating oil acts as a coolant and protects these essential components.

Testing of Induction Motor: Know the Methods

An induction motor, mainly the three-phased squirrel cage induction motor, is used extensively in industrial fields. The reason behind this wide usage of induction motors is because of their properties such as:
  1. Self-starting
  2. Reliable 
  3. Economical
Other than the single-phase induction motors are used for small loads that are used for household applications.  It is evident that day by day, the cost of energy is rising at its peak. And so, it becomes crucial to determine all the parameters of large induction motors. Induction motors are tested by several means of Testing of Induction Motor.
