Partial Discharge and High Voltage testing

  • New Offline HV Cable, PD and Tan Delta testing

    by Jackson Hill on March 26, 2017 in Latest News

    We have recently acquired the HVA60, HVA120 and PDTD120 which enables us to provide off-line cable testing services including Partial Discharge and Tan Delta measurements for cables up to 132 kV. An excellent complement to our industry leading on-line PD testing services, this off-line service provides the added benefit of commissioning cables, Tan Delta measurements for the overall health of the cable insulation and off-line PD for an even more sensitive PD measurement.

    • Offline testing of Land and subsea cables up to 132 kV
    • Accurate testing of cables up to 30km long
    • Off-Line testing and Commissioning for both Medium Voltage and High Voltage Cables up to 132 kV
    • Partial Discharge measurement up to 120 kV
    • Cable mapping for PD fault location
    • Tan Delta Measurements up to 120 kV
    • VLF Commissioning cables up to 66 kV
    • VLF Maintenance cables up to 132 kV

  • Off-Line Cable PD Testing with VLF

    by Jackson Hill on September 22, 2015 in Latest News

    LIVE HV can now provide Off-Line Partial Discharge testing for cables using a VLF test set to energise the cable.

    Already leading the way with On-Line PD testing for all assets and Off-Line PD testing for Switchgear it was a natural progression to start providing Off-Line PD testing for cables.

    VLF allows us to energise high capacitance assets such as long cables but it also presents challenges when designing a PD test system. The noise generated by the VLF must be blocked with a HV filter and the low frequency (0.1 Hz) waveform requires an oscilloscope to operate on Peak Detect mode for PD measurement.
