Biotrafo is a financed project of the European Commission Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action-Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (MSCA-RISE) grant agreement No 823969

The project has created an international and inter-sectorial network which to expands current knowledge about the application of ester-based fluids in power transformers.

BIOTRAFO includes activities related to the production and characterization of these fluids considering several analysis: physical-chemical, thermal, dielectric and magnetic. The properties of the new fluids and the evolution of these properties with aging are studied. Furthermore, the interaction of the fluids with the insulating paper is tested, analyzing the influence of ester-based fluids on its aging process and the overall performance of the paper-oil system. Finally, global transformer models are being developed to determine the influence of the use of ester-based fluids in the transformer design.

The project started on January 1, 2019, and will end on December 31, 2021
