A New Method to Improve the Voltage Distribution and Electric Field Control for Conceder Bushing
Capacitor bushings are one of the key components in power transformers. Although their price is a negligible part of the total price of the power transformer, their quality has a significant effect on performance and reliability of power transformers. In high voltage capacitor bushings, the intensity of voltage and electric field on bushing abacus is very high. This high intensity is also observed in flange parts. The amount of multi layer insulator among the electrodes or floating plates in capacitor bushing make equi-potential surfaces and reduction of electric field in these areas can greatly improve the capacitor bushing performance. In this paper, we investigate the reduction of field intensity and electrical tension and also improvement in voltage control by displacing floating plates which are in the form of aluminum foils stick to impregnated paper. To calculate the field intensity, we used the MAXWELL software using FEM (Finite element method). Using this new method of placing capacitor core its effect on voltage profile reduction and field electrical tension is shown. Over voltage and pollution effects are also investigate on power transformer bushings.
