Insulating liquids - Test methods for oxidation stability - Test method for evaluating the oxidation stability of insulating liquids in the delivered state

IEC 61125:2018 describes a test method for evaluating the oxidation stability of insulating liquids in the delivered state under accelerated conditions regardless of whether or not antioxidant additives are present. The duration of the test can be different depending on the insulating liquid type and is defined in the corresponding standards (e.g. in IEC 60296, IEC 61099, IEC 62770). The method can be used for measuring the induction period, the test being continued until the volatile acidity significantly exceeds 0,10 mg KOH/g in the case of mineral oils. This value can be significantly higher in the case of ester liquids. Additional test methods such as those described in IEC TR 62036 based on differential scanning calorimetry can also be used as screening tests, but are out of the scope of this document. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1992 and Amendment 1: 2004. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) the title has been modified to include insulating liquids different from mineral insulating oils (hydrocarbon); b) the method applies for insulating liquids in the delivered state; c) former Method C is now the main normative method; d) precision data of the main normative method has been updated concerning the dissipation factor; e) former Method A has been deleted; f) former Method B has been transferred to Annex B; g) a new method evaluating the thermo-oxidative behaviour of esters is included in Annex C.

Isolants liquides - Méthodes d’essai de la stabilité à l’oxydation - Méthode d’essai pour évaluer la stabilité à l’oxydation des isolants liquides tels que livrés

L'IEC 61125:2018 spécifie une méthode d’essai permettant d’évaluer dans des conditions accélérées la stabilité à l’oxydation des isolants liquides tels que livrés, que des additifs antioxydants soient présents ou non. La durée de l’essai peut différer selon les types d’isolants liquides, et elle est définie dans les normes correspondantes (par exemple, dans l’IEC 60296, l’IEC 61099, l’IEC 62770). La méthode peut être utilisée pour mesurer la période d’induction, l’essai se poursuivant jusqu’à ce que l’acidité volatile dépasse significativement 0,10 mg KOH/g dans le cas des huiles minérales. Cette valeur peut être nettement plus élevée dans le cas des esters liquides. Des méthodes d’essai complémentaires, par exemple celles basées sur l’analyse calorimétrique différentielle par balayage décrites dans l’IEC TR 62036, peuvent également être utilisées comme test de dépistage, mais elles ne font toutefois pas partie du domaine d’application du présent document. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 1992 et l’Amendement 1: 2004. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: a) modification du titre afin d’inclure les isolants liquides différents des huiles minérales isolantes (hydrocarbures); b) application de la méthode aux isolants liquides tels que livrés; c) l’ancienne méthode C est dorénavant la méthode normative principale; d) actualisation des données de fidélité de la méthode normative principale concernant le facteur de dissipation; e) suppression de l’ancienne méthode A; f) transfert de l’ancienne méthode B dans l’Annexe B; g) une nouvelle méthode d'évaluation de la stabilité à l’oxydation thermique des esters est proposée dans l’Annexe C.

Izolacijske tekočine - Metode za preskušanje oksidacijske stabilnosti - Preskusna metoda za vrednotenje oksidacijske stabilnosti dobavljenih izolacijskih tekočin

V tem dokumentu je opisan način preskušanja za namen vrednotenja oksidacijske stabilnosti izolacijskih tekočin v dostavljenem stanju pod stopnjevanimi pogoji, ne glede na to, ali so prisotni antioksidativni dodatki ali ne. Trajanja preskusa se lahko razlikuje glede na vrsto izolacijske tekočine in je opredeljeno v ustreznih standardih (npr. v standardih IEC 60296, IEC 61099, IEC 62770). Metodo je mogoče uporabljati za merjenje indukcijskega časa, pri čemer se preskus izvaja, dokler v primeru mineralnih olj hlapna kislina ne preseže bistveno 0,10 mg KOH/g. Ta vrednost je lahko bistveno višja v primeru tekočih estrov.
Vzorec izolacijske tekočine se hrani pri 120 °C ob prisotnosti bakrovega katalizatorja v trdnem stanju med prepihovanjem pri stalnem pretoku. Stopnja oksidacijske stabilnosti je ocenjena z merjenjem hlapne kisline, topne kisline, usedlin, faktorja dielektričnega razsipanja ali od časa, potrebnega za nastanek dane količine hlapne kisline (indukcijski čas z zrakom).
V informativnem Dodatku B je opisana metoda preskusa za vrednotenje oksidacijske stabilnosti inhibiranih mineralnih izolacijskih olj v dostavljenem stanju na podlagi merjenja indukcijskega časa s kisikom. Ta metoda je predvidena le za preverjanje kakovosti. Ni nujno, da rezultati zagotovijo informacije o vedenju med delovanjem. Vzorec olja se hrani pri 120 °C ob prisotnosti bakrovega katalizatorja v trdnem stanju med prepihovanjem pri stalnem toku kisika. Stopnja oksidacijske stabilnosti je ocenjena na podlagi časa, ki ga olje porabi za tvorjenje določene količine hlapne kisline (indukcijski čas s kisikom). Dodatne kriterije, kot so topne in hlapne kisline, usedline in faktor dielektričnega razsipanja, je tudi mogoče ugotoviti po določenem trajanju.
V informativnem Dodatku C je opisana metoda preskusa, predvidena za simulacijo termo-oksidativnega vedenja estrskih izolacijskih tekočin (plinska faza zraka pri 150 °C za 164 h).
Dodatne preskusne metode, kot so metode, opisane v standardu IEC TR 62036, ki temeljijo na diferenčni dinamični kalorimetriji, je tudi mogoče uporabiti kot presejalne preskuse, a so zunaj obsega tega dokumenta.

INSULATING LIQUIDS – TEST METHODS FOR OXIDATION STABILITY
Test method for evaluating the oxidation stability of insulating
liquids in the delivered state
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and

non-governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates

closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined

by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61125 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 10: Fluids

for electrotechnical applications.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1992 and
Amendment 1:2004. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

INSULATING LIQUIDS – TEST METHODS FOR OXIDATION STABILITY
Test method for evaluating the oxidation stability of insulating
liquids in the delivered state
1 Scope

This document describes a test method for evaluating the oxidation stability of insulating

liquids in the delivered state under accelerated conditions regardless of whether or not

antioxidant additives are present. The duration of the test can be different depending on the

insulating liquid type and is defined in the corresponding standards (e.g. in IEC 60296,

IEC 61099, IEC 62770). The method can be used for measuring the induction period, the test

being continued until the volatile acidity significantly exceeds 0,10 mg KOH/g in the case of

mineral oils. This value can be significantly higher in the case of ester liquids.

The insulating liquid sample is maintained at 120 °C in the presence of a solid copper catalyst

whilst bubbling air at a constant flow. The degree of oxidation stability is estimated by

measurement of volatile acidity, soluble acidity, sludge, dielectric dissipation factor, or from

the time to develop a given amount of volatile acidity (induction period with air).

In informative Annex B, a test method for evaluating the oxidation stability of inhibited mineral

insulating oils in the delivered state by measurement of the induction period with oxygen is

described. The method is only intended for quality control purposes. The results do not

necessarily provide information on the performance in service. The oil sample is maintained

at 120 °C in the presence of a solid copper catalyst whilst bubbling through a constant flow of

oxygen. The degree of oxidation stability is estimated by the time taken by the oil to develop a

determined amount of volatile acidity (induction period with oxygen). Additional criteria such

as soluble and volatile acidities, sludge and dielectric dissipation factor can also be

determined after a specified duration.

In informative Annex C, a test method intended to simulate the thermo-oxidative behaviour of

ester insulating liquids (headspace of air at 150 °C for 164 h) is described.

Additional test methods such as those described in IEC TR 62036 based on differential

scanning calorimetry can also be used as screening tests, but are out of the scope of this

document.
