Make the most of your available funds and resources with the ready to use portable PDM device. This self sufficient system provides rapid monitoring and analysis of partial discharge in gas insulated switchgear (GIS) and power transformers. The system offers flexibility in when and where testing can be conducted as well as by whom - only one operator with basic partial discharge knowledge is required to conduct tests with the monitor. The accuracy of the system can help you make condition based monitoring decisions quickly and effectively. Partial discharge monitoring can be a useful tool in determining dielectric breakdown and faults within solid or fluid insulation. GIS in particular can be highly susceptible to thermal degradation and accumulative partial discharge issues. Early detection and maintenance can help manage deterioration of insulation and ultimately complete failure. BENEFITS OF A PORTABLE PDM SYSTEM: Follow the integrity of your assets by testing at the point of manufacture, commissioning, installation and periodic testing during operation Compatible with HVDC equipment and retrofit opportunities Control over the duration and frequency of tests An economical alternative to continuous online monitoring Maximise your maintenance schedule by testing at various sites including hard to reach sites and inner city locations Easy to recover data with internal (up to 12 months of data points) and external storage capabilities Immediate real-time monitoring with pre-installed software, built-in touch panel computer and alarm capabilities

Environmental influencers, analysis of oil testing results and practical considerations for maintenance techniques were studied by a research team led by Dr Dan Martin from The University of Queensland. Their paper “State of the Art Review on Managing Vegetable Oil Filled Transformers” addresses considerations a condition monitoring engineer needs to know in order to keep vegetable oil filled transformers operating reliably.
