Webinar: Partial Discharge Monitoring of Transmission Assets

Oct 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Date: Thursday, 26th October
Time: 11am-12pm AEST

Presenters: Brody Ward, Primary Services Support Team Leader at Powerlink Queensland and Thomas Whyte, Senior Engineer at EA Technology

In this webinar, Powerlink Queensland and EA Technology will share findings from their joint paper presented at the 2022 IEEE Electrical Insulation Conference (EIC).

Paper title: Online Partial Discharge Monitoring and Failure Analysis Case Study of a 275kV Oil-Filled Cable Termination

Back in 2022, online partial discharge (PD) monitoring was set up for Powerlink Queensland to monitor a 275kV oil filled cable termination. As this cable termination was close to end-of-life, online monitoring was put in place as a safety device to keep a close eye on asset condition.

In this educational webinar, Brody Ward from Powerlink Queensland and Thomas Whyte from EA Technology will dive into the data insights from online monitoring and how they were used to direct operational decision making and replacement projects. In addition, learn how forensic dissection was utilised to pinpoint the source of defects identified by online monitoring.

A start-to-end business case that gives a full picture into monitoring at a transmission level. Join us!

Topics covered:
➨ Application of PD monitoring for transmission assets
➨ Failure analysis data dissection – Dissolved gas analysis, scanning electron microscopy and more!
➨ Using data to direct operational decisions
➨ Advantages and challenges of online monitoring
