    • 8:30AM – 9:10AM: “Overview and Illustration of Technical Factors Influencing Medium Voltage Cable PD Assessment Outcomes- Part 1, , Sarajit Banerjee, Kinectrics, Jean-Francois Drapeau, IREQ (Hydro-Quebec Research Institute)
      Abstract
      With the development of technology over the last decades in terms of both voltage supplies and PD system characteristics, a growing variety of system options have been proposed to users in order to perform diagnostic PD assessment of medium voltage (MV) cables. This increased offering has raised a number of concerns as to whether the use of one system versus another could lead to different PD assessment outcomes. One of the most dominant factors in such concerns has been the physical effect of the characteristics (frequency and shape) of the voltage supply on PD behavior, which has been discussed frequently over the last 5-10 years in scientific forums.To compare results across different PD system options objectively, accurately and consistently, it is necessary to consider the complete set of parameters which play a role in field MV cable PD assessment outcomes, which include but extend beyond voltage supply characteristics alone. Such factors may be summarized as follows:
      • Test source / type of applied stress
      • PD measurement system characteristics including sensor strategy (hardware oriented)
      • PD pulse discrimination and analysis strategies (software-oriented)
      • PD localization strategies
      • PD test methodology (protocol oriented)
      Kinectrics and IREQ are undertaking a joint, independent experimental study to systematically demonstrate the effect of varying the parameters noted above in a controlled manner, to investigate their potential influence on MV cable PD assessment outcomes. This presentation will introduce and present preliminary results from this joint study, and discuss the different PD testing contexts in which considering such influences is crucial to the selection of a PD system or measurement set-up. Such contexts include the purpose of testing (e.g. commissioning [acceptance] vs condition assessment for maintenance), criticality of the test sample and test circuit characteristics (e.g. length, insulation type, accessibility).
      This will be presented by Sarajit Banerjee
    • 9:10AM – 9:45AM: Condition Assessment of PILC Feeder Cables in Stations – Challenges and Solutions, Dexter Tarampi, BC Hydro
      Abstract:
      This presentation will provide the various design of PILC Cable that are currently in-service in BC Hydro, the age of these assets, their reliability, and some of the “key” stressors for these systems. It will also focus on some of the diagnostic tools we have been using for condition monitoring of these cable assets. Several case studies will be presented explaining the impact as well as the root-cause analysis of these failures. The presentation will also cover the detailed Condition Assessment tools used by our utility to assess the condition of these assets as well as present what works well and what techniques needs some refinements
    • 10:00AM-10:15AM: Break Refreshments / Snacks
    • 10:15AM-10:45AM :“ : “Overview and Illustration of Technical Factors Influencing Medium Voltage Cable PD Assessment Outcomes- Part 2, , Sarajit Banerjee, Kinectrics, Jean-Francois Drapeau, IREQ (Hydro-Quebec Research Institute)
