Partial discharge (PD) is one of the
predominant factors to be controlled to ensure reliability
and undisrupted functions of power generators, motors,
Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) and grid connected
power distribution equipment, especially in the future
smart grid. The emergence of wireless technology has
provided numerous opportunities to optimise remote
monitoring and control facilities that can play a
significant role in ensuring swift control and restoration
of HV plant equipment. In order to monitor PD, several
approaches have been employed, however, the existing
schemes do not provide an optimal approach for PD
signal analysis, and are very costly. In this paper an RTLSDR
(Software Defined Radio) based spectrum analyser
has been proposed in order to provide a potentially low
cost solution for PD detection and monitoring. Initially, a
portable spectrum analyser has been used for PD
detection that was later replaced by an RTL-SDR device.
The proposed schemes exhibit promising results for
spectral detection within the VHF and UHF band.
