A novel method for measurement and interpretation of PD phenomena in inverter-fed motors is discussed in this paper. The interpretation of PD measurements is carried out resorting to the direct-quadrature (dq) transform of the three voltages at motor terminals at the instant a PD event occurs. New tools (the dq loci, dq Hq and dq Hn patterns) are proposed to infer PD activity in a statistical way, similar to that used under AC supply. The method has been validated through tests on motorettes. In addition, measurements on low-voltage inverter-fed motors subjected to repetitive surges till breakdown are reported to support the capability of the method to infer onsetting faults. Measurements are performed through a reliable and lightweight (thus suitable for, e.g., automotive or avionics applications) antenna coupler characterized by excellent signal-to-nose ratio.

Abstract

A novel method for measurement and interpretation of PD phenomena in inverter-fed motors is discussed in this paper. The interpretation of PD measurements is carried out resorting to the direct-quadrature (dq) transform of the three voltages at motor terminals at the instant a PD event occurs. New tools (the dq loci, dq Hq and dq Hn patterns) are proposed to infer PD activity in a statistical way, similar to that used under AC supply. The method has been validated through tests on motorettes. In addition, measurements on low-voltage inverter-fed motors subjected to repetitive surges till breakdown are reported to support the capability of the method to infer onsetting faults. Measurements are performed through a reliable and lightweight (thus suitable for, e.g., automotive or avionics applications) antenna coupler characterized by excellent signal-to-nose ratio.
