The Partial Discharge User Group is a technical forum where information on partial discharge-related failures can be discussed.
Partial discharge is the primary cause of disruptive failure of High Voltage (HV) switchgear. The Partial Discharge User Group is a technical forum where information on partial discharge-related failures can be disseminated and the understanding of the impact of partial discharge on switchgear can be enhanced through targeted investigative research and development work. This will in turn enhance the way in which HV assets are managed and maintained and will make a positive impact on the safety of operators working in substations.
