Abstract

An experimental investigation into the propagation behaviour of partial discharge (PD) pulses in a continuous disc type 6.6kV transformer winding is described in this paper. PD pulses were injected into the winding using a calibrator and the resulting current signals at the line and neutral end terminals measured using wide band current transformers. The location of the troughs (or zeros) in the frequency spectra of the measured signals change in accordance with the position of the injected pulse. The crests (or poles) in the spectra convey information about the resonance frequencies of the winding and are not affected by the position of the injected pulse. The measured spectra are compared with the spectra generated by a simulation model and although differences exist the overall shape and location of the poles and zeros are similar.
