The changes of dielectric parameters in oil-based ferrofluid have been measured in an external magnetic field. The frequency dependent real permittivity and the dissipation factor were measured within the frequency ranges from 1 mHz to 2 MHz by a capacitance method. These parameters have been studied in combined electric and magnetic field, when fields were parallel and perpendicular. The Cole-Cole model has been used to analyze measured data. When a magnetic field was applied, the interaction between the magnetic field and magnetic moments of nanoparticles led to the aggregation of magnetic nanoparticles to new structures - thick chains which had influence on the value of dielectric permittivity. At constant magnetic field the dependence of real permittivity and tanδ on angle between the electric and magnetic field (anisotropy) were measured, too. The various influences of magnetic field development on the investigated liquid are discussed.
