5 Detection methods
5.1 General detection
Turn on the UV imager. Set the appropriate gain, to make the image clear and stable. Then start to conduct a large-area patrol inspection of the equipment and corona discharge, to find out the equipment, parts and the intensity of the discharge. 5.2 Accurate detection
Accurately locate the discharge site. Obtain the visible light photos and discharge characteristics of the discharge equipment, including the number of discharge photons, discharge form, frequency and corona discharge intensity on the surface of the insulator, etc. The requirements are as follows:
a) General requirements:
1) Within the range allowed by the safety distance, when the image content is complete, the UV imager should be as close as possible to the detected
equipment, to maximize the corona discharge area of the detected equipment, within the field of view; measure and record the distance from the UV imager to the corona discharge area;
2) In the positioning of the discharge position, the UV imager shall select the appropriate detection direction and angle, for the observation of the corona discharge part, to avoid other equipment blocking and discharge interference; 3) Make judgement of discharge characteristics in combination with Appendix B; 4) During the detection process, it shall record the parameters, such as instrument gain, ambient temperature/humidity, detection distance, focus state.
b) Recording of discharge pattern and frequency:
1) Adjust parameters such as instrument gain, to make the visual image clear. The video recording time shall be able to fully describe the discharge process; the recording time of the discharge phenomenon, at each point, shall not be less than 5 s;
2) In the process of detecting the length form discharge, by detecting the range of repeated occurrence of corona discharge on the outer insulation surface of the equipment, estimate and record the remaining dry arc distance or the number of insulator sheets and sheds;
6.2 Judgment method for discharge of defective equipment
6.2.1 Average photon number method
Under the normalization principle of the number of 10 m photons, according to the average number of photons, the discharge intensity is divided into three ranges: high- intensity discharge, medium-intensity discharge, low-intensity discharge. 6.2.2 Image observation method
Judgment and defect classification are mainly based on the corona state, characteristic attribute, occurrence location, severity of the live electrical equipment in the image. 6.2.3 Same type comparison method
Evaluate the corona discharge status of live electrical equipment, by horizontally comparing the ultraviolet images of the corona discharge of the corresponding parts of the same model or the same type of live electrical equipment (which can include archival images of different periods, different weather, environments) OR the number of ultraviolet photons.
6.2.4 Comprehensive light image comparison method
Through the comparison with the infrared thermal image and visible light image of the equipment, which is corresponding to the corona discharge position, carry out the diagnosis and evaluation of the defects of the live electrical equipment. 6.3 Diagnosis of discharge detection results of defective equipment
See Appendix B for the diagnosis method of the discharge detection results of the main defective equipment.
7 Classification and handling of defect severity
According to the impact of corona discharge defects on the operation of live electrical equipment or power grid, it proposes different severity and treatment methods, for three categories of defects:
- Category 1: The equipment has low-intensity discharge, which does not affect the normal operation of the live electrical equipment. It will be observed later. - Category 2: The equipment has medium-intensity discharge, which may affect the normal operation of the live electrical equipment. It shall increase the frequency of detection; carry out the maintenance, during the planned power outage.
- Category 3: The equipment has high-intensity discharge, which obviously affects the normal operation of the live electrical equipment; OR the diagnosis and evaluation of equipment defects indicate that it may cause equipment or power grid accidents in the short term, so it shall arrange power outage for maintenance or replacement, as soon as possible.
8 Detection period
The UV detection period for running live electrical equipment shall be comprehensively determined, according to factors, such as the importance of the live electrical equipment, voltage level, environmental conditions.
Under normal circumstances, for the patrol detection of live electrical equipment at a voltage level of 500 kV (330 kV) and above, that is, general detection, it should not be less than once a year. For important substations, converter stations, lines, at 500 kV (330 kV) and above voltage level, which have bad operating environment or serious aging equipment, it may shorten the detection period, appropriately.
For live electrical equipment, which has a voltage level of 220 kV and below, UV detection should be carried out every 1 year ~ 3 years.
For important newly-built, renovated, expanded, overhauled live electrical equipment, it shall be detected within 1 month, after being put into operation.
Under special circumstances, such as abnormal corona discharge sound in live electrical equipment, ice and snow weather (especially freezing rain), serious pollution and atmospheric humidity greater than 90%, THEN, it shall be detected in time. Accurate detection is mainly used as follow-up detection of general detection; the detection period is no longer specified. However, if necessary (such as the categories 2 and 3 defective equipment of concern), it may carry out accurate detection directly, at any time.
9 Imager management
UV imager management shall meet the following requirements:
- There shall be a special person in charge of UV imager; keep it properly; regularly check the power-on and operation functions, to ensure that the instrument and accessories are in good condition.
- The instrument files are complete and available; have exit-factory certificate, instruction for use, warranty letter, analysis software, operation manual, etc. - The storage and use environmental conditions of the UV imager, as well as the Appendix C
Normalization principle for 10 m photon number
Different models of solar-blind UV imagers have different on-screen photons, when measured for the same corona in counting mode. Therefore, under standard laboratory conditions, it shall use the relationship formula of "photon number-detection distance", at a standard distance of 10 m, for conversion; use the revised coefficient between different ultraviolet imagers for conversion, that is, the normalized photon number shall be obtained. At this time, the photon number of each model is the same value. C.1 Calibration of photon number of UV imager
In the dark room, select a standard light source (it may select the deep ultraviolet LED ultraviolet laser, mercury lamp and other classic ultraviolet light sources), which pass through the integrating sphere and diaphragm (aperture of the diaphragm shall not be greater than 1 mm), to form a point light source. A metrologically verified ultraviolet radiometer is set up beyond 1 m, to measure the ultraviolet irradiance value, W. A metrologically verified solar-blind ultraviolet attenuation system is added, between the light source and the integrating sphere. Its attenuation coefficient is ??. The theoretical irradiance value, ??W, of the attenuated point light source, at a distance of 1 m, shall be in the order of 10-14 W/cm2 ~ 10-15 W/cm2.
Place the instrument to be calibrated, at 10 m in front of the attenuated point light source. Adjust the instrument, so that the light source image is centered on the instrument image. Adjust the instrument to counting mode. Record multiple times (at least 10 times), to obtain the average photon number N1;
Add a metrologically verified solar-blind UV attenuator, in front of the light source. The attenuation coefficient is 0.1 Record multiple times (at least 10 times), to obtain the average photon number N2;
The photon number's correction coefficients, k and b, of the instrument are calculated as follows:
E - Ultraviolet photon energy, which is 7.645 x 10-19 J, when selecting 260 nm for calculation;
n - Standard calibration factor, which is 0.001.
The values of k and b can be obtained by solving the above system of equations: Appendix D

b) Broken strands (or loose strands) and scratches of the wires during operation (auxiliary means such as telescopes can be used to help judgement);
c) Improper voltage equalization and shielding measures OR no voltage equalization measures;
d) The gap between the conductor and the ground OR between the conductors is too small;
e) Poor grounding of equipment.
D.3 Abnormal discharge on the surface of the insulator
The abnormal discharge on the surface of the insulator has the following conditions: a) In the case of damp, the surface of the composite insulator is damaged (the auxiliary means, such as infrared and telescope, can be used to help judgement); b) Under wet conditions, the surface of the insulator is dirty:
c) Cracks of pillar porcelain insulators and porcelain bushings;
d) Uneven icing on the surface of the insulator;
e) Poor anti-corona measures, aging insulation, mechanical damage to the insulation on the surface of the generator bar.
