Abstract

The paper shows that open-loop noise reduction techniques can be effective in separating partial discharge (PD) signals from noise. Wavelet-based denoising through the use of thresholding of wavelet coefficients provides near optimal noise reduction for many classes of signals including PD signals in noise. The effectiveness of wavelet transform-based noise reduction depends on selection of an appropriate wavelet basis function as well as on careful selection of threshold function and levels.
