    We propose an educational tool for foundation of electricity using conductive pens. Electrical leads for an experiment were drawn on the ink-jet printing paper using silver ink marker. Electrical resistances were drawn by two kinds of pens; one was the same silver ink marker and the other was a carbon ink brush pen. A combined resistance was measured and compared with the calculated value. The relative error was less than ±1% in both series and parallel connection with the resistances drawn by the carbon ink brush. Therefore, this is useful to experience and learn the foundation of electricity.

    Deterioration of insulating paper for pole transformer has been examined by accelerated aging test to around 200°C. However, its deterioration behavior at higher temperature loading should be studied separately because of the different decomposition reactions. At temperature range between 300-400°C, the weight loss is significant and reached over 70% with increase of the carbon content, which could be functional as an indicator to estimate deterioration at high temperature. The insulation resistance was rather increased at 300°C and decreased over 400°C along with carbonization. On the other hands, the tensile strength was quickly weakened even with heating for 1, 5, 10 min at 300°C, suggesting that physical damage of the paper occurs much faster than the loss of the insulation property. The damaged paper would be easily teared, increase sludge in transformer, and be a potential reason for insulation breakdown.
