Abstract

It is well-known that deformation of transformer winding can produce detectable changes to
the frequency response spectrum as compared to a referenced past measurement. To interpret such changes
for diagnostic purposes, main causes of the trace deviation need to be recognized precisely. In addition, it is
useful that interpretation of transformer frequency response is classified in a way that IoT-based techniques
can be developed in the near future to analyze transformer mechanical integrity. This study has specifically
concentrated on the inductance and capacitance variation due to the axial and radial disk deformation of
transformer winding. Analytical analyses on self- and mutual-inductance variations are discussed and
capacitance variation is studied in detail for symmetrical and asymmetrical transformer disk deformations.
A numerical example is provided to establish the analytical approach and compare inductance and
capacitance variation. The analytical approach is finally examined through experimental study of disk
deformation in a 66 kV transformer winding.
