Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Discharges in power equipments may be a symptom of a fault in a component and, in such cases, their detection at an early stage is essential. This work presents the detection and identification methods based on frequency and time domain measurements made with an antenna, oscilloscope and a laptop. The identification of oil discharge, floating particle discharge and air discharge by radio frequency interference measurements was studied at a high voltage laboratory. The findings of the research should serve as a basis for remote radiometric measurements of partial discharges occurring in power transformers.
