Training Corona and Partial Discharge

Partial Discharge (PD), as its name would suggest, is an electrical discharge that occurs across a portion of the insulation between two conducting electrodes, without completely bridging the gap. PD’s are caused when there is a discontinuity in the insulation system and as a general ‘rule-of-thumb’ PD will occur in systems operating at voltages of 3000V and above (although it should be noted that PD can occur at lower voltages than this). Partial discharges can occur in voids in solid insulation (paper, polymer etc), along the interfaces of multi-layer solid insulation systems, in gas bubbles in liquid insulation or around an electrode in a gas (corona discharge). Partial Discharge activity can initiate under normal working conditions in high voltage equipment where the insulation condition has deteriorated with age, has been aged prematurely by thermal or electrical over-stressing or due to improper installation (this leads to ‘infant mortality’).

PD can often be observed with the commissioning of new equipment due to improper installation, poor design and/or workmanship (this is seen particularly in cable joints and terminations which are made-up on site). It is known that poor workmanship can lead to ‘infant mortality’ of MV/HV networks with a disproportionate percentage of insulation failures being observed within the first 1-3 years of service compared to the rest of the service life of the cables/plant.
