Partial Discharge Course – Milan, Italy

May 15-17, 2018

Cost: 1295,00 Euro per person

About the Course

The objective of this Partial Discharge Seminar is to understand basic PD theory as well as the basics of stator winding insulation systems and why they deteriorate. To learn how PD detection devices work and interpret the test data collected and relate the data to specific failure mechanisms, to enable you to plan maintenance.

The course is designed for engineering and maintenance personnel who either purchase, install, test, maintain and/or repair motors and/or generators. Consultants, manufacturers and repair shop personnel would also benefit from this course. The course is mainly intended for those involved with motors orgenerators rated 3kV and above.

Topics covered in this course include:

Motor & Generator Stator Windings

PD Theory

PD Detection

Interpreting Test Results


Dr. Greg Stone was one of the developers of on-line partial discharge test methods to evaluate the condition of the high voltage insulation in stator windings. From 1975 to 1990 he was a Dielectrics Engineer with Ontario Hydro, a large Canadian power generation company. Since 1990, Dr. Stone has been employed at Iris Power L.P. in Toronto Canada, a motor and generator condition monitoring company he helped to form.
