How do you keep the Australian commodity exports running whilst maintaining an aging system? International demand for Coal, Oil and Petrol, Iron ore, Gold, Alumina, Aluminium, Nickel, LNG, Copper, Iron and Steel, Dairy products, all rely on HV systems that had a design life of 20 years, this was 10 years ago!
Wind Farms are relatively new which means in regard to maintenance, the asset owner needs to think outside the square.
High Voltage Solution.Com Ltd, wish to announce the release of another new service for detecting Partial Discharge in GIS equipment.
To assist our mining clients who are considering replacing switchgear or ensuring all their HV assets do not go down when required (Loss of customer minutes) High Voltage Solution (HVS) has developed an on-site audit process called Risk Based Inspection program (RBI) which combines a number of disciplines to rank clients’ switchgear into low / medium / high risk groups.
With the introduction of built-in Arc Flash protection for switch boards that manufacturers have introduced, traditional methods of detecting internal PD have become ineffective to accurately detect.
