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

Partial Discharge (PD) in cable systems causes deterioration and failure, identifying the presence of PD is crucial to Asset Management. This paper presents methods for interference signals rejection and for PD interpretation for five types of artificial defect in 11 kV ethylene-propylene rubber (EPR) cable. Firstly, the physical parameters of the artificial defects used for PD signal generation are introduced. Thereafter, the sample stress regime, PD testing and detection systems, including IEC 60270 measurement system and High Frequency Current Transformer (HFCT), are outlined. Following on, a novel Synchronous Detection and Multi-information Fusion (SDMF) based signal identification method is developed, to separate PD and interference signals within raw data. Finally, a comparative PD analysis of two detection systems is carried out and several characteristics of insulation related PD signals of EPR cables are reported. The SDMF based data pre-processing and the comparative PD activity analysis contribute to improvement of PD pattern recognition and assist in on-line PD monitoring systems.
