Color, water content, dielectric dissipation factor and total acid number (TAN) were recorded for all combinations.
The dielectric spectra show that dielectric parameters (dielectric constant, dissipation factor and impedance) are the function of frequency.
The same as [1], the test results of the water content, acidity content, BDV, dissipation factor (DF), DCG, and 2-Furfuraldehyde content are taken as the input data for the proposed HI calculation method in this section.
