AIA Compact-Partial discharge detector

UHF measurements on embedded or external sensors are possible with the use of the FCU2, a logarithmic frequency converter, which covers 100 MHz to 1800 MHz. As with the preamplifiers, the AIAcompact automatically detects the FCU2 and changes into the logarithmic display for the UHF detection. To protect the instrument’s hardware it is advisable to connect an input protection unit like IPU2B to the sensor’s output.

 Display Modes of AIAcompact

AIAcompact offers three display modes, which are selected using dedicated control buttons: SCOPE, METER, and TIME.

SCOPE

In SCOPE mode, the AIAcompact shows the phase-resolved partial discharge signal or pattern. Here, the ‘Freeze’ function allows keeping such a captured pattern for further evaluation or for taking screenshots.

METER

The METER mode offers four bar graph displays showing derived quantities of the captured activity. The graphs display the RMS and the peak PD level, as well as their 50 Hz (60 Hz) and 100 Hz (120 Hz) content. The instrument automatically synchronizes to the line frequency.

TIME

Within the TIME mode, the AIAcompact displays five or ten AC cycles triggered by a partial discharge event. Thus, this display shows the pattern of consecutive partial discharge events and, hence, offers a clear identification of bouncing particles and the severity of their activity.

AIAcompact Options

  • AIAcompact software: All captured patterns and displays can be transferred to a notebook via an USB interface using the optional AIAcompact software. Optionally, the software allows acquisition of color PD patterns.
  • Gating: Software controlled noise reduction for PD measurements in environments with high frequency disturbance.
  • MUX: Built-in 4- or 12-channel multiplexer to split the PD signal and the voltage signal, with individual setup and calibration factor for each channel.

ATTanalyzerAccoustic breakdown locator-Effective tool to locate breakdown during the commissioning of GIS and GIL

 ATTanalyzer is a simple and effective stand-alone tool to aid in commissioning tests of gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) systems and power transformer. The ATTanalyzer reduces delays in commissioning and maintenance by locating flaws in GIS systems and transformers acoustically.Battery-operated acoustic sensors are externally mounted to the GIS and connected via fiber optic cable to the acquisition unit. In case of breakdown, the acoustic sensor transmits an optical signal to the ATTanalyzer, when it has detected the sound wave. The ATTanalyzer then displays the signals received from all sensors versus time like a logic analyzer. Following initial localization of the breakdown’s origin, the acoustic sensors can be repositioned closer to the flaw to further narrow down the location.

TDAcompactTan Delta Measurement Devices-Loss factor (dissipation factor) tan δ analysis

The TDAcompact is a loss factor meter. The capacitance Cx, the tanδ, and the voltage are derived by digitally processing the currents of the test capacitor and a reference capacitor.TDAcompact is a portable capacitance and tanδ analyzer. The focus of the instrument’s application is on the analysis of the epoxy-mica insulation of rotating machines. Besides this, the unit is applicable for oil-paper insulation systems and especially for mass-impregnated cables.TDAcompact simultaneously samples the AC current drawn by the device under test and the current drawn by a reference capacitor. Subsequently, the two current traces are evaluated and the capacitance, the tanδ, and the level of the high voltage are calculated. The unit continuously displays and refreshes these results.Therefore, the instrument does not require any user interaction as with the traditional Schering Bridge, nor does the refresh of the display take that long as with automatic adjusting bridge type analyzers. The basic resolution of the tanδ measurement is 10-4, which fulfills the requirements for rotating machine testing as well as for testing on mass-impregnated cables.

capacitance and tanδ analyzer

TDA compact-capacitance and tanδ analyzer

RIVmeter  for the measurement of radio influence voltage

RIVmeter is an instrument for the measurement of radio influence voltage (RIV) according to the relevant standards (IEC CISPR 18-2:2010, NEMA 107-1987, ANSI 63-2-1996, VDE 876, DIN EN 55016-1-1). The instrument has a bandwidth of 9 kHz and a tunable center frequency of 10 kHz to 10 MHz (crystal controlled synthesizer). Technically, the RIVmeter is a selective μV-meter. However, the meter reading is weighted according to the CISPR weighting curve, whereas the repetition rate has a strong impact on the reading. The RIVmeter is an ideal instrument to replace outdated RIV measurement instruments in a transformer testing lab, for instance.RIVmeter is a double super-heterodyne receiver acting as narrow-band filter. This narrow-band detection allows staying away from external RF noise e. g. in non-shielded laboratories by varying the center frequency of the filter.

measurement of radio influence voltage

RIVmeter-measurement of radio influence voltage

Two factors determine the RIV in μV: the transferred charge and the repetition rate of the PD impulse (number of PD pulses per second). Because of this processing, a direct translation of the measured RIV values (μV) into values of apparent charge in pC is in general not possible. Historically, the RIV technique is based on measurement receivers to estimate the disturbance of communication lines. Thus, properties of those instruments then being available became part of the NEMA standards. However, both the 9 kHz bandwidth and the CISPR weighting curve put emphasis on some type partial discharge activity, while they tend hiding others.The calibration of the RIV measurement is done using an RIV calibrator, injecting a sine wave of typically 100 μV into the bushing. The multiplexer of the RIVmeter is used to conveniently determine the correction factor according to NEMA 107-1987 and other standards.
