The energy demand of world is mostly based on petroleum products. Mineral oil is a critical component in Transformer. Oil plays a promistic role for life of Transformer. Insulation is one of the critical parameter in inside of the Transformer.  A major problem in any country is availability of Transformer oil. Hence substitute of mineral oil is more important in Transformer. In this work, various oils are applied in transformer safely and the performance of oil is investigated. This work mainly focuses on a comparative analysis of break down voltage, viscosity, fire point, flash point and Efficiency of various oil and mineral oil.  It should be verified and compared with mineral oil.  It also explains the efficiency of these oils. The ac breakdown strength of these three oils at different temperatures was also investigated. The above properties of three oils are implemented in prototype transformer and the efficiencies of the transformer are calculated.
