Global Liquid-Immersed Transformers Market 2017-2021

Electrical transformers are devices that convert electricity from one voltage to another for T&D purposes. Transformers need an insulating medium to keep the temperature of the core windings in check as well as act as an arc-quenching medium. Oil is the most widely used type of insulating medium. Transformer oil is used as an insulation and arc-quenching medium in power and distribution transformers. Windings use cellulose insulation that has a strong affinity for oxygen and is immersed in transformer oil to prevent oxidation. Transformer oil is produced by the fractional distillation and subsequent processing of crude oil. It also finds application in circuit breakers and switchgears, which are traditional and use oil as the arc-quenching fluid. The global demand for renovation and ex......
