This project is concerned with the feasibility of using capacitive coupling techniques to detect partial discharge activity in high voltage cables and cable accessories. In particular the need to develop an accurate method of calibration is required if capacitive couplers are to be used for on-line condition monitoring. Post-processing of measurement data will be developed so that the discharge type and its location can be identified.
