Paper Abstract

Incipient fault diagnosis is closely related to isolation condition assessment. There are a great number of methods available for condition monitoring and diagnosis of power transformer isolation systems, but only few of them can take direct measurements inside the transformer. Fibre optic sensors can be applied to incipient fault diagnosis. In special, acoustic sensors are being developed for the detection and location of partial discharges in oil-filled power transformers. Towards such objective, this work reports investigation on the applicability of fibre Fabry-Pérot interferometers for acoustic detection both in air and in liquids.
