Paper Abstract

In high-voltage facilities of power stations and transmission networks, discharge activities leading to catastrophic failure can occur. Early detection of partial discharges (PD) in polymeric insulations of HV cable terminations and joints is therefore increasingly important. This paper describes a monitoring methodology to detect PD activity in silicone elastomer by two independent fibre-optic sensor types. Fluorescent fibre-based sensors are sensitive to plasma optical emission already at the onset of PD while an acoustic fibre-optic sensor responds to acoustic emission from the PD during its progression. The sensitivities of both sensor types are compared, and it is demonstrated that they provide complementary information for fibre-optic sensor-based monitoring of high-voltage cable accessories.
