Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Suggestions to augment the IEC60270 partial discharge standard in relation to radiated electromagnetic energy

Stewart, B.G. and Reid, A.J. and Judd, M.D. and Fouracre, R.A. (2007) Suggestions to augment the IEC60270 partial discharge standard in relation to radiated electromagnetic energy. In: Electrical Insulation Conference and Electrical Manufacturing Expo, 2007-09-24 - 2007-09-27.

The IEC60270 standard has become the key reference for general measurement of partial discharge (PD) in high voltage. This paper discusses the need to include reference to radiated emissions within this standard alongside the additional PD detection techniques outlined in the Annex. The paper suggests that the Annex should in the future also make reference to combined simultaneous IEC60270 and RF measurement systems allowing traditional apparent charge measurements to be complimented by knowledge of the radiated signals. The issues of RF calibration through the deployment of a combined measurement system are also discussed as well as the potential of a combined apparent charge and RF system to help further identify basic PD fault types.
