PD Location systems

Enabling accurate identification of deteriorating equipment

Elimpus PD Location systems detect and accurately locate Partial Discharge activity within electricity substations.

Our systems can be installed quickly (within a day) and can start monitoring within minutes of installation. Based on our world-leading radiometric technologies, our systems can locate partial discharge throughout even the largest substations, to sub-metre accuracy. All our technology operates on a non-invasive, non-contact basis and can therefore be installed at any time - even when equipment is in operation. This helps you minimise downtime and disruption, whilst maximising the other benefits that our technology enables.

Utilities use our fixed antenna system, Elimpus4 Fixed, to continuously monitor for and locate PD activity. This allows them to implement preventive maintenance, rather than simply reacting when equipment fails.

Elimpus4 Mobile is a mobile antenna array with integrated data-acquisiton and communications. It is ideal for longer term , but not permanent, installation. It can be easily moved between substations and is therefore particularly useful for spot detection, or where risk management zones have been imposed due to type-fault equipment failures.

PDtect®4 Surveyor is a kit designed to mount on the roof of a vehicle for use in conducting radiometric surveys of substations to detect the presence of partial discharge (PD) through the reception of radio frequency impulses emitted from stressed insulation.
