Tuned medium-band UHF PD measurement method for GIS

In order to replace the lightning impulse test, a very sensitive PD-measurement is required for onsite tests of GIS (CIGRE Joint Working Group 33/23.12 in Electra No 176, 1998). The most sensitive UHF-PD-measurement technique consists of low-noise hi…

Use of high thermal limit conductors in the replacement of 220 kV overhead lines in the Tirolean Alps

The distribution system operator TIWAG-Netz AG operates a 220 kV grid in the alpine region of Tirol. Due to the age of the conductors, the fittings and the pylons (approximately 50 years), the question has arisen as to whether, for parts of…

Effects from downbursts on overhead lines. Meteorological thunderstorm study—climatological, meteorological and CFD analysis

In February and March 2008 cyclone “Emma” crossed some countries of central Europe and caused severe damages. In very local areas thunderstorms with downbursts were embedded in “Emma” and led to collapses of overhead lines.Downbursts are downward win…

Direct current in transformers: effects and compensation

Due to the high magnetic conductivity of transformer cores, very small direct currents in the electric power grid are sufficient to cause half-cycle saturation of the core. Even minor DC-bias leads to a considerable increase of the noise level and to…
