Partial Discharge Measurement and Analysis on Instrument Transformers
Partial discharges (PD), as defined by IEC60270, are localized dielectric discharges in a partial area of an electrical insulation system under high-voltage field stress. Partial discharges in an instrument transformer deteriorate its insulation and can lead to equipment failure.
Diagnostic PD measurements are recommended after conspicuous measured values during factory acceptance testing, on-site acceptance testing and troubleshooting.
You can detect partial discharges already in their early stages with our testing system. This allows you to draw conclusions regarding the condition of the insulation. Maintenance work and additional diagnostic measurements can be efficiently planned based on condition.
Our MPD 800 universal partial discharge (PD) measurement and analysis system represents the next generation of our widely-used and innovative MPD PD testing technology. Enhanced and newly-added hardware and software features ensure highly-sensitive multi-channel PD measurements for reliable, industry-standard PD testing on instrument transformers. It accurately detects and localizes insulation defects and helps you to reliably assess insulation condition and the risk of equipment failure.
Customizable user profiles
You can easily define individual test specifications, including calibration and measurement settings, based on applicable international standards for specific types of PD tests and test objects, and save them as profiles for current and future use. In addition, you can decide which of the available PD measurement and analysis software features you need for a particular PD measurement, hiding those you do not need at any time for individualized PD testing and reporting.
