Corona, Partial Discharge, Breakdown Voltage, Acrylic


This paper presents the design and construction of partial discharge detection from simulation with acrylic insulation instead of general electrical insulation by using the concept of measurement of high current frequency from partial discharge on insulation when high voltage was supplied. An integrated circuit was created to use together with a high current frequency detection signal from 500 kHz or more frequency. Partial discharge detection can hook on the conductor to induce magnetic induction and signal through integrated circuits. The result showed that this tool was able to detect partial discharge signals on the surface and internal of the insulator, including the corona discharge that occurs at the high voltage rod and the ground rod as well. The testing of efficiency detection was similar according to IEC 60270 standard. It can be used to refer to the partial discharge position on acrylic insulation.
