What Is Tan δ, Or Tan Delta?
Oil Tan Delta testing(OTD), also called Loss Angle or Dielectric Dissipation Factor (DDF) or Power Factor (PF) testing, is an electrical dielectric test on the insulating oil used to determine its quality. The test is performed at two temperatures. Information from each test and the results considered together may form the basis for making a judgment on whether it’s suitable for a transformer to continue in service and for determining when the replacement or regeneration of the transformer oil is needed.

Changes in capacitance can, for example, indicate mechanical displacements of winding or partial breakdown in bushings. Aging and degradation of the insulation, coupled with the ingress of water, increase the amount of energy that is converted to heat in the insulation. The rate of these losses is measured as dissipation factor.

Principle of Tan Delta Test
A pure insulator when is connected across line and earth, it behaves as a capacitor. In an ideal insulator, as the insulating material which acts as dielectric too, is 100 % pure, the electric current passing through the insulator, only have capacitive component. There is no resistive component of the current, flowing from line to earth through insulator as in ideal insulating material, there is zero percent impurity.
In pure capacitor, the capacitive electric current leads the applied voltage by 90°.
In practice, the insulator cannot be made 100% pure. Also, due to the aging of insulators, the impurities like dirt and moisture enter into it. These impurities provide the conductive path to the current. Consequently, an electric leakage current flowing from line to earth through the insulator has a resistive component.
Hence, it is needless to say that, for a good insulator, this resistive component of electric leakage current is quite low. In another way, the healthiness of an electrical insulator can be determined by the ratio of the resistive component to the capacitive component. For a good insulator, this ratio would be quite low. This ratio is commonly known as tan δ or tan delta. Sometimes it is also referred to as dissipation factor.
