An experimental investigation of the behavior of partial discharges occurring in insulation cavities as a function of light irradiation conditions is presented in this paper. Partial discharge inception voltage (PDIV) measurements were performed for different irradiation conditions of the test objects (visible light, of variable intensity, ultra violet (UV) light or absence of irradiation), defect geometry and conductivity of insulating material. It is shown that changes of such factors involve considerable alteration of partial discharge inception features, in terms of both inception voltage and delay time. Depending on applied field, defect geometry, insulating material characteristics and irradiation condition, in fact, partial discharge inception voltage may be influenced prevailingly by background radiation, as generally stated in literature, or by field-assisted electron detrapping from material-cavity interface.

Abstract

An experimental investigation of the behavior of partial discharges occurring in insulation cavities as a function of light irradiation conditions is presented in this paper. Partial discharge inception voltage (PDIV) measurements were performed for different irradiation conditions of the test objects (visible light, of variable intensity, ultra violet (UV) light or absence of irradiation), defect geometry and conductivity of insulating material. It is shown that changes of such factors involve considerable alteration of partial discharge inception features, in terms of both inception voltage and delay time. Depending on applied field, defect geometry, insulating material characteristics and irradiation condition, in fact, partial discharge inception voltage may be influenced prevailingly by background radiation, as generally stated in literature, or by field-assisted electron detrapping from material-cavity interface.
