Application: Partial Discharges (PD) for Medium Voltage Switchgear
A Corona discharge is one of the main causes of medium voltage (MV) switchgear equipment failure, ageing and losses in a stable power system supply. It often goes undetected until the next manual inspection. Besides inspections, companies today rely on electromagnetic and ultrasonic methods to detect PD. Those solutions suffer from interference and high costs.
Less known is that partial discharges resulting from the Corona effect, generating ozone gas. By digitally monitoring ozone gas levels in MV switchgear, PD events can be detected and alerts can be generated to maintenance staff for immediate inspection.
