### Thermal Considerations when Condenser Bushings Are Applied in Bus Duct

The Thermal Issues
• Heat generated in the conductor tube due to flow of current and the electrical resistance of conductor tube
• Steady state temperature rise at the hot spot is determined by the temperature rise of the hot spot due to the flow of current and by the heat transfer characteristics of the bushing.
• The heat that is generated within the condenser can only leave the bushing by transfer into the oil or into the air at the terminal ends of the bushing.
• The heat dissipated at the terminal ends is determined by the temperature of the connecting bus and the surrounding medium (air side and oil side)

Standard Thermal Conditions for Condenser Bushings

• Defined in IEEE C57.19.00, Requirements and Test Procedure for Outdoor Power Apparatus Bushings
• Section 4.1: “Usual Service Conditions”
• Ambient air temperature = 40°C, max; -30°C, min.
• 24 hour average transformer oil temperature = 95°C
• External bus connection temperature rise = 30°C max, at rated current.
• Section 5.4.1: ‘Thermal Basis of Rating
• Bushing hot spot temperature rise at rated current = 65°C, max, over ambient air temperature.
• Hottest spot bushing temperature at rated current

105°C = 40°C + 65°C

### Thermal Conditions Inside ofBus Duct

Potential Bus Duct Thermal Conditions

• Air side terminal temperature rise can be as much as 65°C according to IEEE C37.23
• Ambient air temperature inside of bus duct will, most likely, be greater than the 40°C specified as standard for condenser bushings.
• 24 hour average transformer oil temperature = 95°C
• The amount of heat generated within the bushing remains the same.
