With the launch of a new hand-held instrument, a big step forward has been taken to understand and interpret the measurement of Partial Discharge (PD), a major cause of failure in High Voltage (HV) Electrical Assets.
Unlike measuring Volts and Amps, PD measurements can be difficult due to the sensitivity of the measurement and environmental conditions out in the field. The UltraTEV Plus² has been designed based on feedback from electrical engineers around the world and the result is a major breakthrough for the use of hand-held PD instruments. The UltraTEV Plus² tells the operator if the measurements are real PD or if its noise or interference and can capture measurements and transfer them via Wi-Fi, meaning inspection staff can record data and move on to the next job. All the information is then available for PD and Asset Management experts to analyse the results; making comparisons, looking for trends and integrating the information into corporate Asset Management systems.
PD measurement on cables is now possible with the UltraTEV Plus², also new analytical tools allow greater ability interpret more complex results.
