Enhancing PD Monitoring with the PDE Map
PD testing on generators has gained widespread acceptance, being able to provide information on of the degradation process and the points of weakness in the insulation system whilst also helping support develop important maintenance strategies.
Stator winding insulation degradation in generators is influenced by several factors, including design, age, and most notably, the operating condition of the machine. Understanding the influence of load and temperature on the specific PD behaviour can be efficiently used to identify the typical deterioration mechanism.
