1 Scope
This Part of GB/T 20833 provides a common basis with respect to partial discharge off-line measurements on the winding insulation of rotating electrical machines: – measuring techniques and instruments;
– the arrangement of test circuits;
– normalization and testing procedures;
– noise reduction;
– the documentation of test results;
– the interpretation of test results.
The measurement methods described in this document are applicable to stator windings of machines with or without conductive slot coating and to the stator windings of machines made with form wound or random wound windings. In special cases like high voltage rotor field windings, this document is applicable as well. The measurement methods are applicable when testing with alternating sinusoidal voltages from 0.1 Hz up to 400 Hz; see Annex A. Interpretation guidelines are given in this document and are applicable only if all the following requirements are fulfilled:
– Measurements performed with power frequency of 50 Hz or 60 Hz, or when testing with power supply within a frequency range of 45 Hz to 65 Hz.
– Form wound windings and winding components such as bars and coils.
– Winding with conductive slot coating. This is usually valid for machines with voltage rating of 6 kV and higher.
For machines with random wound windings, form-wound windings without conductive slot coating, and testing at frequencies differing from power frequencies, the interpretation guidelines are not applicable. The testing procedures for off-line PD-measurements of this document can be used for assessing the uniform quality of manufacturing or/and the trending of these kind of windings as well as converter driven machine windings. NOTE: Testing of low voltage machines with so called Type I insulation systems is defined in IEC 60034- 18-41. Testing procedures for qualification of converter driven high voltage machines with so called Type II insulation systems are dealt with in IEC 60034-18-42 (in addition to the optional electric tests described therein).

IEC 60270:2000 High-Voltage Test Techniques – Partial Discharge Measurements 3 Terms and Definitions
For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in IEC 60270 and the following apply.
3.1 Partial discharge; PD
Localized electrical discharge that only partially bridges the insulation between conductors and which can or cannot occur adjacent to a conductor.
3.2 Off-line measurement
at phase terminal side of stator winding. The PD activity results in increased ageing through erosion of the main insulation. Coil loosening can also lead to mechanical abrasion in a severe case.
As insulation erosion is caused by high voltage induced slot discharges, it will occur more severely at bars/coils near HV terminals. Therefore, off-line PD measurements will provide different PD intensity and, sometimes, patterns at terminal and neutral side, in the presence of slot discharges.
Bar or coil vibration within the slots during operation, caused e.g., by forces due to the electromagnetic field and in the condition that the bars and coils are not tight anymore, may be the initial state of slot portion coating damage. Under certain conditions vibration sparking may occur during machine operation. This is caused by intermitted interruption of driven currents which are caused by electromagnetically induced voltages. Although it is not a PD phenomenon it may occur similarly during measurements.
When the conductive slot coating is deteriorated by the vibration sparking, in standstill these can be measured as slot discharges. Since vibration sparking is driven by the magnetic field this phenomenon can occur mainly in the slot section of each bar or coil, from terminal side to neutral side, the effect may be measured on both sides of the winding. Comparative measurements including pattern analysis on terminal and neutral side may give an indication for vibration sparking. F.1.4 provides more background information.
4.2.4 End-winding gap and surface discharges
Partial discharges in the end-winding area may occur at several locations with high local electric field strengths. Such discharges usually occur at interfaces between different elements of the stator winding overhang. If the stress control coating of the end-winding becomes ineffective because of poorly designed interfaces, contamination, porosity, thermal effects, etc., reliable field grading is no longer ensured and surface discharges will develop, which may gradually erode the insulation and surface materials. This is normally a slow ageing mechanism. The PD behavior might be subjected to relatively fast changes due to surface effects. In addition, PD may occur between phases, for example due to inadequate interface clearance, at elements of the overhang support system, or as phase to ground discharges on the end- winding surface.
4.2.5 Foreign conductive materials discharges
Conductive contamination of the winding may result in a strong local concentration of partial discharges. These may result in a localized damage in the insulation. More dangerous may be larger metal pieces such as broken bolts or screws, as well as unintentionally forgotten tools. Beside the local concentration of PD and its potentially damaging effect it may lead to secondary impact such as immediate mechanical damage or abrasion driven by the impact of the magnetic field to such metal pieces.
