Abstract

A study to assess the impact of partial discharge on the performance of ZigBee equipment in high voltage electricity supply substations is described. The character of partial discharge and ZigBee technology are both briefly reviewed. A field trial system developed for deployment in a 400 kV air insulted substation is described in detail and some preliminary proof-of-system results are presented.
