Partial discharge (PD) measurement and identification have great importance to condition monitoring of power transformers. In this paper, a new method for recognition of single and multi-source of PD based on extraction of high level image features has been introduced. A database, involving 365 samples of phase-resolved PD (PRPD) data, is developed by measurement carried out on transformer artificial defect models (having different sizes of defect) under a specific applied voltage, to be used for proposed algorithm validation. In the first step, each set of PRPD data is converted into grayscale images to represent different PD defects. Two "image feature extraction" methods, the Local Binary Pattern (LBP), and the Histogram of Oriented Gradient (HOG), are employed to extract features from the obtained gray scale images. Different variants of Support Vector Machine (SVM) are adjusted for optimal classification of PD sources in this process. Impact of the employed parameters in the image processing such as image resolution, random noise, and phase shift, on identification accuracy is investigated and addressed. It is shown that by using HOG-SVM method 99.3% accuracy can be achieved. This is hardly affected by various external factors. Two case studies have been conducted on multi-source PD for evaluating the performance of the proposed algorithm. Avoid defect is implemented into the transformer model and the resultant recorded signal is used for the study. The DBSCAN algorithm is used as the mean of PD source clustering and sub-PRPD pattern development. It is shown that HOG-SVM method has superior performance in identifying active sources, under sub-PRPD pattern application.


Multi-source Partial Discharge Signals Discrimination by Six Bandpass filters and DBSCAN Clustering
Anşin, Berfin (2018-01-01)
Partial discharge (PD) signals generated by defects in a transformer insulation can be captured through measurement instruments and they may be used, after preprocessing, to discriminate the PD Sources. Some of the artificial defect models, such as: corona, internal cavity and surface discharge in air are developed in the laboratory. These defect models are put in parallel under a high voltage stress. The PD signals stemmed from these sets of multiple PD sources are captured. In this paper six bandpass filt...
Electrical characterization and an equivalent circuit model of a microhollow cathode discharge reactor
Taylan, Onur; Berberoglu, H. (2014-07-01)
This paper reports the electrical characterization and an equivalent circuit of a microhollow cathode discharge (MHCD) reactor in the self-pulsing regime. A MHCD reactor was prototyped for air plasma generation, and its current-voltage characteristics were measured experimentally in the self-pulsing regime for applied voltages from 2000 to 3000 V. The reactor was modeled as a capacitor in parallel with a variable resistor. A stray capacitance was also introduced to the circuit model to represent the capacit...
Near-infrared emission spectrometry measurements for nonintrusive soot diagnostics in flames
Ayranci, Isil; Vaillon, Rodolphe; Selçuk, Nevin (2008-01-01)
The present study focuses on measurement of line-of-sight emission intensity spectra in the near-infrared range by Fourier-transform infrared spectrometry for use in tomographic soot diagnostics. Measurements are carried out on an axisymmetric, laboratory grade, ethylene/air diffusion flame within the 1.1-1.7 mu m (9000-6000 cm(-1)) spectral range. Presentation of the measurement and calibration methodology is followed by the description of noise and uncertainty assessment procedures. A novel noise characte...
THz transmission and detection through glow discharge detectors
Cinar, K.; Altan, Hakan; Sahin, A. B. (2013-04-30)
The capability of low cost glow discharge detectors (GDDs) to detect terahertz (THz) radiation has drawn much attention recently. In order to employ them in applications such as THz imaging these studies have typically focused on the response of the GDD at specific frequencies. To better understand the spectral behavior of glow discharges, we have not only examined the response of the GDD at a specific frequency of 118 GHz, but also we examined the interaction mechanism of GDDs with THz radiation using tera...
Electrical transport at a non-ideal CrSi2-Si junction
Anilturk, OS; Turan, Raşit (2000-01-01)
Electrical transport through a CrSi2/n-Si Schottky junction was investigated by internal photo emission spectroscopy and electrical current-voltage (I-V) techniques in a wide temperature range. When the thermionic emission theory is used in its common form the apparent barrier height is found to be strongly temperature dependent. Internal photoemission measurements yielded a barrier height weakly temperature dependent for these samples. This difference between optical and electrical results shows that the o...
