dc.descriptionRotating electric machines with operating voltage greater than 12 [kV] are an integral part of the installed base of electric generators in different countries. These voltages incorporate new challenges to be solved in maintenance practices. One of the most important challenges is the identification of the condition of the stator winding. For many years, the most commonly used monitoring techniques in electrical generators were off-line insulation measurements, especially in direct current. More recently, the use of on-line insulation monitoring techniques has enabled problems to be detected in advance, such as partial discharge measurement. This article presents the measurement of on-line partial discharges, as a condition monitoring technique for high voltage electric generators. It is also used for risk assessment and decision support for corrective actions. In the case study, it was evidenced that periodic monitoring is key during the operating time of the evaluated generator unit, which can be extended to other generators. The monitoring of on-line partial discharges allowed to know its condition and evolution through the trend in time.Keywords: Partial discharge, electric generator, failure mode, predictive maintenance, void.en-US

  • 2017: 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference - Panama (ESTEC 2017) [115]
    The 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference (ESTEC 2017) organized by the Universidad Tecnologica de Panama (UTP) is the most relevant conference, engineering-based, of our country. The topics of the conference are focused on areas of interest of Panama and the Latin America region, including: agroindustry, astronomy, bioengineering, education on engineering, energy and environment, ICT engineering, infrastructure and construction, logistics and transportation, manufacturing processes and material science, robotic, automation and artificial intelligence. This year, ESTEC partnered with IEEE Panama Section to ensure the quality of the peer-reviewed process; we received more than 180 full papers from 20 countries and 50% of those were accepted to participate in the conference and will be published in the conference’s proceeding. Furthermore, the conference included technical tours to the Cocoli’s Gate and the Miraflores Visitors Center of The Panama Canal and to the Wind Power Park in Penonome, Panama.
