OMICRON Seminar Series: Partial Discharge in High Voltage Assets

May 28 - June 15, 2018

Brazil (São Paulo/Porto Alegre), Chile (Santiago), Perú (Lima), Colombia (Medellín)


Partial discharge (PD) phenomena are in many cases the preliminary stage of a complete breakdown of the electrical insulation in high-voltage assets, which can lead to unplanned outages, high repair or replacement costs and lost production. To prevent such unexpected occurrences, regular PD testing has proven to be a reliable diagnostic method for detecting failures in the insulation system of electrical assets before major damage or a breakdown occurs.

In these series of workshops, we are going to introduce the basics of PD, the applications and the various advanced measurement techniques. Participants will acquire knowledge on PD measurements on various high voltage apparatus and become familiar with its the possibilities and limitations. The event will also include a hands-on session, where participants can obtain practical experience with real test devices.
