Insulating oil is widely used in transformer and other large high-voltage electrical equipment.Its main functions are insulation, cooling and arc extinction. When the transformer runs, it may emit heat or discharge, which generate gas, micro water and trace metals in transformer oil. This will not only reduce the insulation capacity of insulating oil,and will greatly reduce the ability of its extinction, causing the transformers or other oil-filled electrical equipment appearing Internal latent malfunction, which would affect the operation of equipment. In this Paper, we simulate the transformer discharge effect to discharge in transformer oil. Then we use spectral theory and photo-spectroscopy technology to measure and analyse the oil sample, combining with IR absorption peaks of main fault characteristic gases, and qualitatively analyse CO, CO2, CH4, C2H6, C2H4, C2H2, H2 in gas mixture. The results show that the Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy can be very effective for analysing gases in transformer oil, which can quickly detect possible problems in the equipment.
