PDHM-201 Non-intrusive Handy Partial Discharge Detector



1.Partial discharge does not cause the electric discharge of a completely short-circuited electrode. Such discharge usually has a very small amplitude value, but it will certainly cause the continuous deterioration of the property of the insulation layer and finally cause electric equipment fault.

2.The non-intrusive partial discharge detection, as a convenient and simple method, is used for identifying the potential insulation faults which may cause power cutoff or personal injury.

3.The partial discharge emits energy in following manners:

Electromagnetic energy: radio wave, light and heat;

Sound energy: sound wave and ultrasonic wave;

Gas: ozone and nitric oxide.

4.The most practical non-intrusive detection technologies are all based on the detection of the high-frequency signals and the ultrasonic signals in the electromagnetic spectrum. The product is an instrument which has simple operation and is specially developed for detecting the activities of electromagnetic waves and ultrasonic waves.


-Airborne ultrasonic discharge activity

1.The sound radiation in a partial discharge activity appears in the whole sound spectrum. It is possible to hear, but this depends on the hearing ability of the person involved.

The use of the instrument for detecting the ultrasonic wave in the sound spectrum has following advantages: compared with human ear, the instrument is more sensitive and irrelevant to the operators, and runs at the frequency above voice frequency, and also has stronger directivity.

2.The most sensitive detection method is to use the ultrasonic sensor with the center frequency of 40 ~200 kHz. By virtue of this method, partial discharge activities can be successfully detected.


-Airborne high-frequency electromagnetic discharge activity

1.When occurring in the insulation layer of a high-voltage switching cabinet, the partial discharge activity can generate high-frequency electromagnetic wave which can leak from the switching cabinet to the external surface through the openings on the metal shell, and such openings can be the shell gaps or seal washers and the gaps around other insulation components.

2.When propagating to the outside of the switching cabinet, the electromagnetic wave will generate a transient voltage on the grounded metal shell. Such transient earth voltage (TEV) exists in a very short time in the range from several millivolts to several volts, and has a rise time of several nanoseconds.

3.The probe can be placed outside the switching cabinet through a non-intrusive mode to detect partial discharge activities.
