Small transformers: Major application segment for transformer oils

Transformers having capacity rating below 5 MVA are considered as small. Majority of
small transformers are distribution transformers, which form an important part of a power
generation and distribution system. Thus, it is necessary that these transformers have the
specified oil content to insulate and dissipate heat into the atmosphere. With an
increasing population, rising power requirements, growing transition towards renewable,
the power distribution network is increasing. This is driving the use of distribution
transformers that, in turn, is propelling the demand for transformer oils. In 2012, small
