Liquid dialectrics

Post by John Doe » Sat Jan 05, 2019 2:14 am

I am planning on constructing the entirety of my high voltage line in the next couple days, and read a couple posts here and on Physics Stack Exchange that described MOTs to be very inefficient, using them for longer periods of time could end up with them burning out. I decided to look into some liquid dielectrics that would work for voltages above 2KV, and found that mineral oil and synthetic automotive oil were good options (although I'm currently questioning the synthetic automotive oil).
Any alternatives, brands, products that you all would recommend?

Thanks.

You really need to do a search first before asking this question here
It would have been ok in the new user chat area
