The SONUS PD is specifically designed for Partial Discharge (PD) and Airborne Emission (AE) detection on Medium and High Voltage Switchgear. The unit detects Transient Earth Voltage (TEV) signals generated by internal partial discharge as well as ultrasound acoustic discharge generated by surface tracking, arcing or corona. PD detection can be utilized to detect early warning signs of equipment insulation failure. Inspections can be performed quickly and safely by maintenance personnel with minimal training. Fast and accurate diagnosis of problems using the SONUS PD will help you prevent unexpected outages.

Defects on the surface of high voltage insulators are prone to partial discharge phenomenon including arcing and tracking. Tracking causes carbon deposits to build up over time and ultimately leads to flashover and insulation failure. The SONUS PD is highly sensitive to the ultrasonic emissions produced by tracking and arcing and enables any onset to be detected long before a failure occurs.
Partial discharge activity inside insulating materials in metal clad medium and high voltage switchgear induces small voltage impulses called Transient Earth Voltages (TEV) on the surface of the switchgear’s enclosure. TEV can be picked
up using capacitively coupled transducer of the SONUS PD. Left unchecked, the partial discharges inside these insulating components will eventually lead to catastrophic equipment failure.
