Statistical analysis of AC dielectric dtrength for palm oil under the influence of moisture


Shukri, Muhammad Safwan and Azis, Norhafiz and Jasni, Jasronita and Yunus, Robiah and Yaakub, Zaini (2021) Statistical analysis of AC dielectric dtrength for palm oil under the influence of moisture. Pertanika Journal of Science & Technology, 29 (1). pp. 77-94. ISSN 0128-7680; ESSN: 2231-8526


This paper presents a statistical study on the AC Breakdown Voltage (BDV) of Refined, Bleached and Deodorized Palm Oil (RBDPO) olein under the influence of moisture. Different moisture contents of the RBPDPO were prepared by drying the RBDPO in the oven at different time intervals. The AC BDV test of RBDPO was performed whereby the distance between 2 electrodes was set to 1 mm. The statistical analyses of AC BDV data for RBDPO were carried out based on normal, lognormal and Weibull distributions. It was shown that as the moisture content increased, the AC BDV of RDBPO decreased exponentially. Statistical analyses revealed that the AC BDV data with different moisture contents had platykurtic distributions. Moisture could influence the skewness of the distribution whereby the tail shifted from right to left as the content increased. At different moisture contents of RBDPO, most of the AC BDV data of RBDPO could be represented by Weibull distribution.
