Partial Discharge Monitoring
From sensors to software, Dynamic Ratings helps utility and industrial customers improve transmission, distribution and substation systems reliability by implementing partial discharge monitoring, leading to increased maintenance savings and reduced outages.
Because partial discharge (PD) activity is often present well in advance of insulation failure, it provides the most evident indication of defects and deterioration. Asset managers can evaluate partial discharge activity over time and make informed strategic decisions regarding the timely repair or replacement of the equipment before an unexpected outage occurs. There are several different types of partial discharge measurement practices including classical electrical PD measurements, ultra high frequency PD measurements, and ultrasonic PD measurements.
