The issue addressed by this project is the determination of the long term health of a supergrid transformer by the identification and location of Partial Discharge (PD) activity.
The aim of this project is to remotely monitor PD activity on a 275KV / 33KV transformer using a PD monitoring system supplied and installed by DMS Ltd. After a period of testing the transformer will be inspected to determine the accuracy of the monitoring system in determining PD location.
