Investigation on the Applicability of the Time Domain Analysis of Discharges in Gases for the Defect Identification at AC Voltage

Abstract


The partial discharge diagnosis is an established instrument for the condition assessment of high voltage insulations and equipment. Under AC voltage stress the phase resolved pattern is of great significance in order to become aware of the type of fault. As a result of the inapplicability for DC voltage stress, approaches for alternative interpretation techniques such as the time domain analysis of partial discharges were identified in recent investigations. In these different types of fault are taken into account as well as different insulating media. The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether an analysis of the pulse shape is also applicable for the defect identification under AC voltage stress. By focussing on gaseous insulating media, contact noise and surface discharges are emulated in ambient air, whereas corona discharges are emulated in ambient air and oxygen. A method for analysing discharges, occurring in the negative and the positive half-wave of the test voltage, is proposed and discussed.
