“We can see gassing in our insulating oils, but how can we be sure if it’s stray gassing or a real internal transformer problem?”
“Can we easily switch from uninhibited oil to inhibited grade or GTL oils, or do we need to take compatibility aspects into consideration?”
“Are there better ways to identify insulation paper degradation than the classic furanic analysis?”
“Does our oil analysis program need to be optimized for each transformer in our fleet, according to its type and current condition? If yes, how do we do this?”
Steve Eeckhoudt is currently a senior expert at ENGIE Laborelec. A specialist in insulating fluids, lubricating oils and power transformer and turbine condition monitoring. He is the author of a number of publications and has participated in international research projects on corrosive sulphur, oil additives, stray gassing, transformer ageing and condition assessment. Steve is a member of several IEC TC10 working groups (MT21, MT38) and CIGRE working groups (JWG D1/A2.47, D1.70) and is the current chairman of the Belgian NC IEC TC10.
