OLPD Condition Monitoring and Service Contracts

The HVPD Kronos® Permanent Monitor provides continuous OLPD monitoring technology providing an early warning against HV insulation failure through developing insulation faults. Continuous OLPD monitoring systems detect operational and environmental variations in PD activity and provide the best warning against HV insulation failure. This early warning needs to provide sufficient time to schedule a planned, preventative maintenance intervention at minimum cost and maximum convenience for the operator, whilst avoiding what can be a very costly, unplanned outage.

The condition benchmarking of OLPD data also plays a critical role in effective condition-based maintenance, whereby the condition monitoring data obtained from the HV asset under test is uploaded to HVPD OLPD Measurements Database© where it can be compared with similar types of plant to identify the worst-performing circuits.
