    Abstract

    The addition of nanoparticles into insulating liquids has been a popular area of research for the last 20 years as improvements have been observed in the breakdown strength of aged insulating liquids. This paper reports on the changes in the conductivity and the mobility of charge carriers in oil as a result of ageing and how these are effected by the addition of nanoparticles to the aged insulation.
