AE-150 - Portable Partial Discharge Detection and Localisation System for Power Transformers
Transformer Testing - Partial Discharge
The AE-150 detects and locates Partial Discharges & Hot Spots in power transformers. This is done by analysing ultrasonic waves produced by a breakdown of the electrical insulation or high energy heat events. The ultrasonic waves travel through the oil and strikes the metallic shell of the transformer, providing the AE-150 with the signals needed to locate the problem.
The key feature of the AE-150 is the capability to synchronise acoustic emission signals with the electric partial discharge Signal. Powerful noise suppression is then achieved through averaging, increasing dramatically the probability of localisation.
