The importance of partial discharge measurement and monitoring

September 1, 2019

Insulation faults are a major cause leading to the eventual breakdown and failure of assets, such as power transformers, motors and generators, as well as switchgear and power cables.
Partial discharge (PD) measurement and monitoring are reliable methods that can be used anytime to diagnose the insulation condition of an electrical asset effectively detect localized weak points in the insulation system.
If you are not already familiar with PD measurement and monitoring, our paper of the month describes the importance of using these dependable tools for assessing the insulation condition of electrical assets and for detecting defects that can lead to costly failure.
