Abstract

A TEM half-horn antenna has been designed and constructed for the detection impulsive noise. The particular application of interest is the recording of partial discharge and/or sferic radiation in a 400 kV electricity transmission substation. The characteristics and performance of the half-horn are presented. Laboratory verification of the antenna's utility for the detection partial discharge has been carried out using a partial discharge simulator.
