Can synthetic or natural esters be used in on-load tap changers, or in vacuum on-load tap changers?

David Stockton, Marketing and Sales Manager

ABB's answer

One of the advantages of vacuum on-load tap changers is they can be used together with natural and synthetic ester fluids as the load commutation is taking place inside the vacuum interrupter. However, as the ester fluids have different properties compared to mineral oil, the selection of tap changer will be different.
