Transformers’ operation and end of life mainly depend on its solid insulation. It is subjected to different stresses that cause the cellulose degradation. The ageing process is highly dependent on the moisture content and the correct impregnation. In the impregnation process, the dielectric coolant fluid is absorbed by the rest of the transformer porous materials, especially the insulating cellulosic materials, conditioning their properties. Due to the transition to a more sustainable energy system, new lines of research that explore alternatives to traditional mineral oils, as esters, are being developed. However, it is necessary to study their behaviour in the different manufacturing processes and during the operating life of the transformers for their future application. In this paper, the changes to be made in the impregnation process to include a soya-based liquid, taking the place of mineral oil, and considering as solid dielectrics Crepe Paper, Diamond Dotted Paper (DDP), Kraft and Presspaper (PSP) are studied.
