Iris Power | On-line Partial Discharge Monitoring

May 13, 2021 - 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM CEST (Central European Summer Time) Virtual


If you missed our free webinar last April on “On-line Partial Discharge Monitoring” you have another opportunity to attend on May 13th, 2021, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm CEST (Central European Summer Time)
Howard Sedding of Iris Power presents “On-line PD monitoring of rotating machines – some basics” describing the objectives of making PD measurements while the machine is operating, deterioration mechanisms associated with PD, the sensors employed and the challenges of obtaining reliable PD data in the presence of significant electrical interference.

The Course will run from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM CEST (Central European Summer Time)

Cost: Free

Topics covered:
  • Role of PD testing in condition monitoring
  • What is PD?
  • PD-related stator winding insulation deterioration mechanisms
  • Types of PD sensors
  • Electrical interference and means to eliminate/minimize

Instructor: Howard Sedding

Dr. Howard Sedding graduated with a BSc in electrical and electronic engineering at the University of Strathclyde and then acquired MSc and PhD degrees.  Most of Dr. Sedding’s career was spent working at the Research Division of Ontario Hydro, later known as Kinectrics. Howard was involved in, or responsible for, numerous projects related to the specification, testing, monitoring and maintenance of solid, liquid and gaseous electrical insulation systems in a wide range of high voltage electrical equipment.  He is an active member of numerous technical committees, and has contributed to many IEEE and IEC standards concerned with electrical insulation.  Specifically, he is the Chair of the Canadian committee for IEC TC112 (Evaluation and qualification of electrical insulating materials and systems), the International Secretary of IEC TC42 (High voltage and high current test techniques) and is the Canadian representative for Cigre SC A1 (rotating machines). Howard has authored and co-authored more than 150 technical papers. Currently, Howard is employed as an Insulation Engineer at Iris Power
