Abstract
Contaminated transformer oil has been tested under non uniform electric fields and the effect of different electrode systems presented in this paper. Three different electric fields were examined i.e. DC, AC and DC biased AC. These experiments revealed that with all the different electrodes arrangements, contaminated particles always formed bridges between electrodes under DC electric field. The bridges were thicker and more particles were attracted with more uniform electric field (spherical electrode) than with a divergent electric field (needle-plane).
