Portable PD monitoring system

2 Portable PD monitoring system


2.1 Designated use
The portable PD monitoring system is designated for monitoring rotating
machines. It may be used as well for other electrical high-voltage (HV) system
assets like high-voltage cable systems (for example cable terminations and
joints) or power transformers. The portable PD monitoring system can be
installed only while the HV object is out of service and temporarily grounded.

2.2 Functional description


The OMS 605 is a three-channel portable PD monitoring system designed for
temporary partial discharge (PD) monitoring.
The signals from PD sensors like, for example, capacitors or high-frequency
current transformers are acquired in a three-channel data acquisition unit. The
PD signals are filtered, amplified and digitized in real time (pipeline architecture).
With an amplitude quantization of 14 bit and a sampling rate of 64 MS/s, a sub-
sample time accuracy of ± 2 ns is achieved for synchronous multi-channel
measurements. The quasi integration is achieved by a digital band-pass filter.
The center frequency and the bandwidth can be freely chosen in the range from
0 up to 32 MHz (selectable filter bandwidth from 9 kHz up to 3 MHz) to avoid
disturbances and to reach an optimal Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), even under
noisy on-site conditions. All data acquisition and pre-processing routines are
performed in the acquisition unit which guarantees an optimum performance in
speed and signal quality.
A four-parameter vector (n; qi; φi; ti) for each single PD pulse is identified, where:
• n represents the acquisition unit number and channel
• qi the apparent charge value
• φi the ac voltage phase angle
• ti the absolute time
An oscilloscope mode and an FFT-based spectrum viewer to analyze input
signals with full bandwidth and the viewer to locate PD by time-domain-
reflectometry are also included.
Advanced system features permit intelligent data post-processing to get useful
information about the insulation condition. To achieve this, synchronous multi-
channel and multi-spectral evaluation techniques are applied.
Synchronous Multi-Channel PD Evaluation Technique (3PARD) was originally
developed for evaluation of three-phase PD measurements because its
application requires three independent PD observers like, for example, coupling
capacitors connected to the three terminals of a generator. The 3PARD (star
diagram) visualizes the relation among amplitudes of a single PD pulse in one
phase and its crosstalk generated signals in the other two phases. By repetition

13
OMS 605 User Manual

of this procedure for a large number of PD pulses, PD sources within the test
object as well as outer noise appear as clearly distinguishable concentration of
dots in a 3PARD diagram.
Synchronous Multi-Spectral PD Evaluation Technique (3CFRD) enables
synchronous multi-spectral PD measurements to separate PD sources. In
contrast to 3PARD, 3CFRD evaluation is performed on a single-channel PD
measurement. Multi-spectral measurements are based on pulse spectra
correlation by applying three different band-pass filters simultaneously. The
three band-pass filters can be tuned to areas with low disturbance level.
Through proper choice of the band-pass center frequencies, it becomes feasible
to perform PD measurements according to the IEC 60270 standard and at the
same time to remove practically all superimposed disturbances. The 3CFRD
correlates the output of the three band-pass filters exactly like 3PARD does with
the pulse magnitudes of a PD triple simultaneously detected at three phases.
Both, 3PARD and 3CFRD diagrams show different pulse-type sources in
separable clusters. Each cluster can be selected individually and the pattern
displayed in a PRPD.
The output of the PD data pre-processing is transferred to a laptop computer /
system controller that enables long-term data storage.

3.2.2 Normalization
Due to pulse propagation, resonance and mutual cross-coupling in machine
windings, calibration according to IEC 60270 is not applicable to generators.
Normalization of the test circuit facilitates the comparisons between
measurements on machines having similar design, taken with the same PD
system. Normalization is recommended by IEC 60034-27 before starting any
monitoring session.

CAL 542

Figure 3-3 Normalization

Normalization of the test circuit is performed by injecting short-duration current


pulses of a specified magnitude at the machine terminals or as close as possible
to them. This is done by means of a reference pulse generator (calibrator)
conforming to the specifications given in IEC 60270. The injected charge
simulates PD pulses as they appear at the machine terminals during the
measurement. The normalization procedure can only be performed off-line. The
ratio between the magnitude of the injected pulse and the magnitude of the
pulse read by the sensor gives the Divider Factor.
With the machine off-line and the OMS 605 connected (see "Wiring
instructions" on page 21), the normalization procedure is performed as follows:

WARNING
Death or severe injury caused by high voltage or current possible
► Always follow all internal safety instructions when working with high-
voltage equipment while connecting, disconnecting or handling the
calibrator.
► Before connecting the calibrator (for example, CAL 542) to the rotating
machine, make sure that the rotating machine is off-line and temporarily
grounded.

OMS 605 User Manual

1. Connect a calibrator (for example, CAL 542) to one of the three phases (see
Figure 3-3 "Normalization" on page 23) by connecting one lead to the
relevant phase and the second lead to the main grounding of the machine.
2. Apply the calibrator pulse of the chosen value. This value should give you a
stable measurement reading with a good signal-to-noise ratio.
Note: The calibration is only valid for a fixed set of center frequency and
bandwidth.
3. Remove the temporary grounding.
4. When you see the calibrator impulses clearly as the highest impulses on the
respective unit, enter the chosen calibrator value in the QIEC (target) input
field and press Compute in the Calibration Settings area of the Q tab.

Monitoring Software overview

4 Monitoring Software overview


Note: The Monitoring Software is optional.
The Monitoring Software is a highly modular, scalable and distributed software
system. The system architecture consists of the windows-based core part and
the web-based control part. The core part of the Monitoring Software is realized
as windows services and runs continuously without any direct user interactions.
The core system implements:
• collection and persistence of measurement data served by a variety of
connected PD acquisition devices in a repository (database) for long term
storage through the flexible interfaces on the data access layer
• data post-processing and analysis through the process logic unit and the
variety of analysis services (trending observation, pattern classification, risk
assessment, estimation of the condition of monitored asset)
• security tasks for data access and system operations, check of system
integrity (housekeeping, self-monitoring)
The control part of the system provides a web-graphical user interface for
access and administration. The control part implements the functions for user
interactions like user identification, system administration, customizing of the
portable PD monitoring system design and set-up parameters, post-processing
data access, reporting.
The portable PD monitoring system provides PD data from each of the
acquisition units in time intervals defined by the user. PD activity is displayed as
PRPD for each phase/sensor and for each separated PD source, respectively.
Trend diagrams of statistical parameters such as PD magnitude, frequency of
occurrence of PD pulses etc. are available. Suited filter options enable the user
to constrain the data display according to his specific interest. The user can set
limits which cause warning or alarm messages when exceeded.
The portable PD monitoring system allows two types of connection to the laptop
computer / system controller. The connection types are as follows:
• Short link means the laptop computer / system controller will be placed in a
"USB-cable length" (up to 2 m) from the acquisition units.
• Wide link means the USB converter as well as the laptop computer / system
controller can be placed in up to 1.5 km distance from the acquisition unit
using fiber-optic cables.

5.4 Start monitoring


OMS 605 mobile portable PD monitoring system can be used for diagnostics of
multiple power system components (monitoring objects) and storing data
collected during multiple measurements (sessions). Obviously, these
diagnostics cannot be performed simultaneously. To enable this functionality
Monitoring Software allows defining and storing of multiple monitoring objects,
multiple monitoring templates (system configurations) for each monitoring object
and performing multiple sessions with each template.
Monitoring Object - the electrical apparatus or component whose isolation will
be PD monitored (for example, an HV generator)
Monitoring Template - a specific configuration of the portable
PD monitoring system to perform PD measurement on one Monitoring Object
Monitoring Session - one PD measuring session performed within a specified
time period - "sessionwise". The session includes measurement results with
their time frame reference, and information about the Monitoring Software
configuration.

5.4.1 Start monitoring - the workflow


To perform monitoring you need to:
• Create a new or select an existing Monitoring Object
• Create a new or select an existing Monitoring Template for the Monitoring
Object
• Insert ambient conditions (optional)
• Start the session

Monitoring Software

Figure 5-5 Monitoring object

Create a new The Monitoring Object contains the necessary information to identify the
Monitoring Object monitored electrical apparatus and name connected channels (Channel
Names).
The setting of Name, Tech Tag and Channel Names is mandatory. The setting
of the Monitoring Object’s properties is optional (Figure 5-6 "Create a new
Monitoring Object" on page 50).
All Monitoring Objects will be identified and visualized by their name. Therefore,
this attribute has to be unique. A Tech Tag is the full written technological tag,
thus an individual tracking number for registration. The Tech Tag must be
unique for a Monitoring Object. The channel name technically defines the place
to install the measurement equipment on the object. The names can be reused
for other objects.
All of the above mentioned fields have a maximum length limitation of ten
characters.
It is essential to describe the Monitoring Object as accurately as possible. Doing
so, the engineer who is in charge of performing a measurement can easily
identify the object and, more important, the right physical connection between
the measurement equipment and the object.

The configuration for Schedule, Threshold Rules, and


Measurement Device Configuration can be performed as follows:
Schedule The Schedule defines the overall duration and periodic measurement
recurrence in detail (Figure 5-13 "Schedule").

Figure 5-13 Schedule

The Duration is the length of the monitoring session. It can be set up in minutes,
hours and days.
The Acquisition Time is the time interval stated in seconds used to acquire all
data for the diagrams. It is saved for the current running session.
The Measurement Recurrences define periodic intervals during the Duration
in which measurements will be triggered to create PRPD and 3PARD
histograms. Those measurements will be repeated as long as the Duration time
has not elapsed.
Note: All diagrams are available in the completed session overview page.
During a running session, all real-time scalar values are visualized for the
appropriate phases.

Threshold rules It is possible to add new Threshold Rules in this menu (Figure 5-14 "Threshold
Rules" on page 55). Every rule needs a Name and one of the three or all
Channels with one of the PD Values QIec, QAvg or PDEvents must be chosen.
Then a value for an Alert and a Warning must be set. The values of Alert and
Warning can be equal, but it is not possible to set a higher value for Warning
than for Alert. Every value from Atto up to Tera can be set. The values can be
inserted in several ways. For example, it is possible to write either
"0.000000000001" or "1e-12" or "1p" for one Pico. The shortcuts for the scientific

5.7 Handling the partial discharge measuring data:


Recommended procedures
5.7.1 The OMICRON signaling system
The OMICRON OMS 605 portable PD monitoring system is capable to indicate
different signal levels (for simplicity, called collective signals). Up to three
different PD threshold values can be defined for each point of measurement
(sensor) within the Monitoring Software to distinguish between different
operation and error modes. These three signal levels are typically visualized as
"traffic light" signals: green, yellow and red. The green light indicates no warning
and no PD values registered above critical threshold level. The yellow light
indicates a warning. The red light signals mean a critical PD level has been
exceeded.

5.7.2 Hierarchy of PD signal threshold levels


All signal classes are allocated to different PD levels. The PD level is
independently measured by the PD sensors and the PD acquisition units for
every single point of PD decoupling. Therefore, a status description indicated
with a separate "traffic light" is available for every single observed component.
These single signals are grouped to a higher hierarchical level. Finally, all
signals are concentrated in one single traffic light display.
For any top level signal displayed in the Rule Violation (see section 5.5.1 "Rule
violations" on page 64) pop-up, it is possible to determine the source and
violation reason for each signal.

67
OMS 605 User Manual

5.7.3 Definition of PD signal threshold levels


In order to automatically report signals, PD charge threshold levels have to be
defined for every single PD sensor during the commissioning process of the
OMICRON OMS 605 portable PD monitoring system. Therefore, all PD sensors
have to be normalized. During the normalization process, the ambient noise
level has to be detected as a reference value describing the minimum sensitivity
of the PD detection. As the ambient noise situation changes with connecting the
cable line to the grid, these values have to be checked again after energizing the
machine for the first time. It may be necessary to observe the electromagnetic
ambient noise situation over a long period of time to cover different power load
distribution, which may influence the noise situation. As a consequence, the
signal levels may have to be adapted. All definition and parameter optimization
tasks are performed by OMICRON system engineers during system
commissioning and performance check.

5.7.4 How to proceed in case of signals


In general, signal messages automatically generated by the portable
PD monitoring system should not be directly linked to any actions like relay
tripping or switching-off the system. All signal messages have to be understood
as an indication and also as a demand to investigate the problem on a more
detailed level. Therefore, the overall signal has to be tracked down to the lowest
signaling level showing a single measuring point (equal to a single channel of a
PD acquisition unit) as the origin of the detected PD event. When a PD signal is
identified, it has to be evaluated if the signal was caused due to PD activity in
the insulation of the machine or due to external influences as, for example,
unexpected high disturbance pulses because of switching activity in the power
plant.
In case of external disturbances causing signal error, measures have to be
taken by using the expert software tools (with the support of an OMICRON
system engineer) to exclude these kinds of signals from further data processing
in order to prevent false signals in the future.

68
Monitoring Software

Signal caused A single signal per phase (Yellow/Red Light)


by a single
As a first action after stop of acknowledgement of the
event
signal, the relevant signal light has to be obeyed for the
next minutes (see section "Threshold rules" on page 55). If
no further signal is reported from the monitoring laptop
computer / system controller, the past signal can be
classified as external effect not influencing the
performance of the monitoring component to be monitored.
It is recommended to go back to normal operation. As a
countermeasure to prevent false signals based on single
events, there are the option to select QAvg instead of QIec.
For QAvg the average period of charge measurement can
be increased in order to make the charge threshold criteria
more robust to single disturbances of short duration.
Multiple signals per phase (Yellow/Red Light)
In case of receiving a signal message in all three phases
simultaneously, an external source is indicated. A critical
PD event initiated by one source contemporary on all the
three phases is very unlikely. After quitting the signals, it is
recommended to obey the relevant signal lights for a few
minutes and then to continue operation as usual. Again,
increasing the charge measurement period may help to
make the charge threshold criteria more robust in order to
prevent false signaling in the future.
Signal message In case of repetitively or even continuously generated
occurs again signal messages, a real PD defect has to be considered
and a more detailed analysis of the corresponding PRPD
pattern has to be initiated immediately.
For a basic description of how to analyze typical PRPD
patterns, see section on page 69. This gives you a first
overview and a guideline how to proceed with a first
analysis of the potential PD fault detected by the portable
PD monitoring system. It is recommended to contact an
OMICRON system engineer right after a first analysis of
the signal history and the PRPD pattern related to the
specific partial discharge event for further diagnosis and
expert advice.

6.3 CAL 542 charge calibrator (optional)


With the CAL 542 charge calibrator you can calibrate the portable
PD monitoring system according to the IEC 60270 standard. The aim of the
calibration is to verify that a measuring system is able to measure the specified
PD magnitude correctly. By calibrating the measuring system in the complete
test circuit, you can determine the scale factor k for the measurement of the
apparent charge. As the capacitance of the test object affects the circuit
characteristics, calibration should be made with each new test object, unless
tests are made on a series of similar objects with capacitance values within
± 10% of the mean values.

Figure 6-3 The CAL 542 charge calibrator

Battery The CAL 542 charge calibrator is powered by a 9-V lithium battery. The battery’s
