Intelligent condition monitoring and asset management: partial discharge monitoring for power transformers

Judd, M.D. and McArthur, S.D.J. and McDonald, J.R. and Farish, O. (2003) Intelligent condition monitoring and asset management: partial discharge monitoring for power transformers. Power Engineering Journal, 16 (6). pp. 297-304. ISSN 0950-3366

Abstract

Condition monitoring of power transformers is a significant issue for electrical utilities. Research has demonstrated the efficacy of employing ultra high frequency measurement of partial discharge in the monitoring of transformers. A condition monitoring architecture is described that supports the capture and interpretation of diagnostic data, and provides engineers with meaningful diagnostic advice using intelligent system technologies.
