During internal fault, the internal pressure rise is relieved by the expelling out of oil through Pressure relief device /explosion vent. However the Pressure relief device closes back when the pressure drops. Hence the oil exposure to atmosphere is minimised, thus saving large quantity of costly transformer oil from oxidation and moisture absorption. Fire hazard due to transformer oil does not exist after the closure of Pressure relief device.
