Utilising Holistic Condition Monitoring on MV/HV Motors to Reduce Unplanned Downtime

The authors of this paper discuss the drivers and benefits behind holistic CM of MV/HV Motors, specifically a combination of electrical and electro-mechanical technology, and how they can be applied non-intrusively and effectively used to prioritise maintenance and/or repair of such critical assets.

On-line Partial Discharge Condition Monitoring of Complete Networks for the Pulp and Paper Industry: Challenges and Solutions Explained Through Case Studies

This paper focuses on case studies of the deployment of OLPD testing and monitoring solutions at several paper sites within the U.S. The case studies will present diagnostic testing of unshielded MV cable at one paper mill up to full permanent OLPD monitoring systems at two others.
