    Abstract

    In this paper an attempt is made to simulate the propagation behaviour of Partial Discharge (PD) acoustic emission (AE) signals in a simple experimental tank. The mathematical model has been developed in the form of partial differential equations (PDEs) for PD acoustic wave propagation in transformer oil and also in a steel tank. The PD is modelled as a point source at the centre of the tank. A Finite Element Analysis tool (FEMLAB), has been used to simulate the propagation of the acoustic waves. The reflection and transmission behaviour of the AE wave front on the steel wall tank is studied.
