Small Transformers: Major Application Segment for Transformer Oils 

Transformers having capacity rating below 5 MVA are considered as small. Majority of small transformers are distribution transformers, which form an important part of a power generation and distribution system. Thus, it is necessary that these transformers have the specified oil content to insulate and dissipate heat into the atmosphere. With an increasing population, rising power requirements, growing transition towards renewable, the power distribution network is increasing, giving rise to the usage of distribution transformers that in turn gives rise to the demand of transformer oil. In 2013, small transformers are estimated to have the largest transformer oil consumption share followed by large ones, and utility transformer.
