Smart Network Diagnostics: Online Partial Discharge Monitoring of Electrical Networks
Focusing on the feasibility of the detection of defects in HV cables through measuring the cable sheath current, the main contribution to the project carried on by Marina’s research has been the development of a method for the detection and localization of four types of defects through measuring cable sheath current.
This research is focused in the feasibility of the detection of defects in HV cables through measuring the cable sheath current measurements. A smart monitoring technology is developed to verify the bonding connection of cable sheaths of distribution grids using sensors distributed along cable systems. Signal processing of induced currents on cable sheaths compared with the theoretical values give useful information to identify where an incipient defect is located. With the aim of reducing the current induced in the cable sheaths, cross-bonding (CB) grounding cable systems are used in long distance power transmission land lines. A new criterion for the detection and localization of defects that might occur in the cables sheath with CB configuration has been developed. The criterion proposed can be applied at different levels of load current and at different percentage of unbalance in minor sections. For the application of the criterion, the cable system under evaluation is modelled using the ATP software. Various practical cases were studied showing the effectiveness of the criterion for the detection and localization of different types of defects in simulated cable systems. Furthermore, in order to validate the criteria adopted for the defect detection, based on the ATP model, two real cases were evaluated. The results obtained proved that this criterion is suitable for the detection and localization of defects in the cables sheath, when on-line measurements are performed in monitoring applications.
