Partial discharge (PD) phenomena are in many cases the preliminary stage of a complete breakdown of the electrical insulation in high-voltage assets, which can lead to unplanned outages, high repair or replacement costs and lost production.
To prevent such unexpected occurrences, regular PD testing has proven to be a reliable diagnostic method for detecting failures in the insulation system of electrical assets before major damage or a breakdown occurs.
Our new white paper aims to familiarize you with the basics of partial discharge. Find out about the causes and consequences, as well as how it is measured and which criteria are important for selecting a PD measurement device.
Enjoy reading and watch out for our next paper of the month!
