TechTalk’s are to be used in the electrical field to assist engineers with the latest technologies available to add to technical solutions.
Partial Discharge could appear in any point of the insulation system as electrical stress, by exceeding the dielectric strength.
Electrical discharges (ED) in MV power circuits are (1) Partial Discharges (PD) and (2) Partial Arcing (PA). Partial Arcing is a term coined by Martec to explain multiple findings which exhibit some common characteristics of PD.
Electrical engineers should carefully consider the best practice to ensure the reliability of the plant and safety of the personnel during and after the lockdown period.
Unconventional PD measuring (IEC 62478) methods and systems can detect PD signals, identifying different physical characteristics and properties of the PD.
