Agenda & Info

 

April 12th

Introduction to Partial Discharge Measurements

  • Instructor: Matthew Sze
  • Panelist: Mathieu Lachance

This session will introduce the basic theory of partial discharge measurements. We will discuss the measurement setup according to IEC60270, calibration process, charge calculation and explain how to interpret the common phase-resolved partial discharge (PRPD) diagram. 

 

May 10th

PD Measurements on Distribution Switchgear

  • Instructor: Mathieu Lachance
  • Panelist: Matthew Sze

This session will discuss the different partial discharge measurement techniques applicable for metal-clad and metal-enclosed distribution switchgear. Relevant standards offline and online PD measurement techniques will also be addressed. Case studies will be reviewed to show the efficiency and sensitivity of different PD techniques. 


June 14th

PD Measurements on Rotating Machines

  • Instructor: Mathieu Lachance
  • Panelist: Matthew Sze

In this session, we will discuss the theory of partial discharge measurements on rotating machines and focus on measurement circuits, test procedures, and basic information on PD propagation. Case studies will be reviewed to show how to perform an assessment. 
 

July 12th

PD Measurements on Gas-Insulated Switchgear

  • Instructor: Stefan Hoek
  • Panelist: Matthew Sze, Mathieu Lachance

Details to come.
 

August 9th

PD Measurements on Power Transformers

  • Instructor: Matthew Sze
  • Panelist: Mathieu Lachance

This session will discuss the theory of partial discharge measurements on power transformers, including measurement circuits tests and calibration procedures. Both electrical PD measurements and acoustic PD localization will be introduced in this session. Case studies will be reviewed at the end of the session. 

 

September 13th

PD Measurements on Power Cables

  • Instructor: Mathieu Lachance
  • Panelist: Matthew Sze

This session will discuss the theory of partial discharge measurements on power cables, focusing on measurement circuits, test and calibration procedures, and PD localization. PD measurements using a single channel and multi-channels will be covered. Case studies will be reviewed at the end of the session.
