Utility, Middle East – Detecting Pending Asset Failure
This case study will detail how IPEC’s PD-SGS detected a pending asset failure in a Middle East utility company.
Airport, UK – Asset Monitoring
In 2018, following a recent high voltage failure, IPEC were tasked with finding a condition monitoring solution at an airport in London.
Oil Company, UK – Partial Discharge Detected & Located on 33kV Assets
A sharp increase of Partial Discharge activity was detected on a 33kV switchgear panel by IPEC’s on-line PD Monitoring system, the ASM. High TEV PD signals were detected across the switchboard.
Chemical Company, South Korea – Fault Prevented
IPEC kept a close eye on the rise, and the criticality went from 0 to 100 in a very short period of time meaning a failure was imminent.
Utility Company, Middle East – Cable PD Detected
The examination showed extensive PD damage around the trifurcating point of the termination.
Oil Company, South Korea – IPEC ASM Detects Partial Discharge
IPEC conducted an annual data analysis report for the client, and it concluded there were high levels of Partail Discharge on cable EA4800B.
Seoul transport company, South Korea – PrecisePD Located PD on Cable
IPEC conducted Partial Discharge cable mapping for the customer in Seoul using the PrecisePD location and detection system.
Utility, UK – Fault Prevented in 33kV Switchgear
Partial Discharge spot testing was carried out in the 33kV substation.
Switchgear PD Detection and Location
Client Engineers carried out routine tests on MV switchgear and accessories using IPEC’s PD-SGS instrument.
Utility, London – 132kV Cable Termination Fault Prevented
A 132kV cable termination into a 132/11kV transformer at a large central London substation failed in Nov 2011, causing extensive damage.
Steel Plant – PD Location
In early 2009, one of the monitored cables in the steel plant experienced rapidly increasing levels of discharge activity.
Rural Substation – Faulty VT Contacts
On 20th Sept 2012, PD initiated in the switchgear of a transformer panel at the substatio
HV Cable Monitoring
The system provides permanent monitoring for partial discharge of the cable insulation, cable joints and the terminations.
Olympic Park – Discharging RMUs
As part of a scheduled test program, IPEC carried out PD testing on all 170 RMU switches in the distribution network on the Olympic Park.
Crossrail – Partial Discharge Monitoring of MV Switchgear
Partial discharge tests carried out in Oct 2012 showed that the switchboards were free from PD.
