Partial discharge is a phenomenon that can occur in most types of high-voltage electrical equipment. Its detection and the interpretation of results is a special discipline which requires knowledge of both the measurement system and product technologies. Detecting Partial Discharge activities at an early stage can prevent severe equipment failures and thus professional data interpretation is critical. ABB offers start-up and periodic partial discharge assessments on ABB GIS built up on the experience of many events over a long period of time.
