Studies on the electrical properties of several locally availabl~ vegetable oils have strong similarity between their properties and those of the transformer oil used for comparison purposes. Appropriate treatment of the oils gave oils of higher break down voltages than that of the transformer oil. The results also showed the dependence of the result on the percentage FF A content of the oils. Further studies requiring the use of highly refine~ oils (very low FFA) in actual operation are necessary. These will test the stability of the oils during actual performance and serve· to confirm the promise shown by these renewable raw materials.
