The HVPD Kronos® Portable Monitor is an on-line partial discharge (OLPD) continuous monitoring system for short-term installation. This monitor is designed to be moved around the network for short-term OLPD monitoring sessions of 1-3 months. It provides a diagnostic insulation condition assessment of in service plant, including switchgear, cables, transformers and rotating machines of 3.3 kV and above.

The Flexible Remote Monitoring system can be used routinely or after a high PD level is detected with the PDS Insight or HVPD Longshot unit. This system trends PD activity over time and detects any load variances and intermittent PD activity. Analysis can be viewed by the customer in real time using the cloud-based web view, while the system can gauge PD levels to provide immediate alerts regarding a change in asset condition. The compact monitoring setup can be quickly moved around site by the customer to analyse numerous assets without the need for an outage, keeping your HV Plant online. Uniquely in the market, we provide a dedicated service contract in conjunction with the monitoring technology and HVPD OLPD Measurements Database© to provide frequent reporting and comprehensive support to Condition-Based Management scheme.

Noise Reduction Performed With The HVPD Kronos® Portable Monitor Software Using Event Recogniser© Software Module

The HVPD Kronos® Portable Monitor software enables discrimination against electromagnetic noise and interference. The below OLPD monitoring results show that only around 1 pulse in 1000 detected by the monitor is a partial discharge pulse, the remaining 999 being noise.
