Certified Competency Certificate : Partial Discharge Assessment (Measurement, Data Analysis & Interpretation) – (CPD UK Accredited)
Learn about how to evaluate the conditions of the medium and high voltage electrical assets by performing Partial Discharge test and analysis. (Cables, Switchgear, Transformer and Rotating Machines)
In-depth Partial Discharge and measurement techniques
The training will begin with partial discharge phenomena, from the definition, the physical process behind it and the representation used. This will expand into the Internal Pd phenomena using the physical laws which will help participant better understand the shape of the graphs. Participant will have complete understanding of the partial discharge phenomena and why they are triggered within insulation systems.
The instructor will further explain how to do the measurement, type of sensors, position, procedure for the different asset type and type of Pd measurement. Participant will learn how to properly perform the measurement and evaluate the test results.
Data analysis and interpretation: (Cables, Switchgear, Transformer and Rotating Machines)
One of the most difficult tasks is interpreting the PD data and determining the time an insulation system may remain in service before damaging and costly failure can occur. The instructor will show and explain the principles of data analysis for each asset (such as cables, switchgear, Transformer, and rotating machines) and type of test (online and offline).
Real PD data in form of PDPattern (graph analysed to study the partial discharge phenomena) eg: simplified drawings will be used to explain the data interpretation. With this participant will be able to evaluate the condition of the asset tested, thus perform the proper follow up action.
Participant will be able to apply the principles and the ways of interpreting the data to any technology (instrument) even if different technology has different software as the principles is still the same. At the end of the training, the attendees will be able to select the right technology based on the asset/test they want to perform. The instructor will also further discuss any particular instrument attendees are using.
The objective of the training is to improve existing knowledge or provide a different approach in case there are focus on a single PD technology, data acquisition procedure with a step by step guidelines and best practices.
- Electrical engineers: to learn about partial discharge and gain knowledge.
- Engineers interested on PD data analysis and interpretation.
- Asset managers: to evaluate the condition of their assets.
- Maintenance engineers/technicians: to perform condition assessment test and/or re-commissioning after repair.
- Engineering and maintenance personnel who are involved in condition assessments of electrical assets.
- Company who employed 3rd party to perform partial discharge testing: will learn what information to look for in order to do the correct analysis based on the asset/test performed. This will help to evaluate the test reports provided by third party contractors and in selecting the right test follow up action.
- Any industries/engineers involved with: Cables (MV: 6kV – 35kV / High and Extra HV: 66kV – 500kV), Switchgear (AIS 6kV – 35kV / GIS: 35kV – 500kV), Transformers (MV: 6kV – 35kV/ HV and EHV: 66kV – 500kV), Motors (6.6kV – 11kV / 17.5kV) and Generators (6.6 – 30kV).
