Noise has been a major problem in Partial Discharge (PD) measurement, hampering its effectiveness as a means of assessing insulation condition and of diagnosing faults in power plant insulation. The problem has become more evident in recent years as efforts are made to adopt on-line PD-detection for practical plant insulation condition monitoring. The majority of PD detection systems use Ultra High Frequency (UHF), High Frequency Current Transformer (HFCT), Acoustic Emission (AE) sensors or IEC60270 standard electrical contact systems. Despite great advances which have been achieved in hardware instrumentation over the past years, various forms of noise still affect PD measurements, irrespective of the type of measurement system employed. This paper presents the experience which the authors have accumulated in recent years dealing with noise in PD measurement using the four, aforementioned, measurement systems.
