High Voltage Partial Discharge Ltd. (HVPD) supplies a comprehensive range of equipment to detect and monitor on-line Partial Discharge (PD) for the condition assessment of in-service power cables, switchgear, motors and generators, and transformers rated at 3.3 kV and above. Suitable for Medium Voltage (MV), High Voltage (HV) and Extra High Voltage (EHV) assets, their Partial Discharge testing and monitoring technology provides the user with an early warning of developing insulation faults, helping them to avoid costly failures and resulting unplanned network outages.
HVPD’s Head Office, Manufacturing and Training Facility is based in Manchester, UK and hosts a 100 kV Faraday Cage facility. As an international organisation they support their global customers with an office in North America, Middle East, China and Western Australia, as well as an extensive network of international channel partners. HVPD are proud to have won three Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in the categories of Innovation and International Trade (x2) and are committed to reinvesting in research and development year-on-year to stay at the front of their field.
HVPD Kronos® Permanent Monitor (Permanent Monitoring Unit)
Remotely monitor your complete HV/MV network for Partial Discharge 24/7/365.
The HVPD Kronos® Permanent monitoring system is designed for monitoring the insulation condition of complete electrical networks to help avoid unplanned outages and improve reliability.
Available with four, six and 24- channels for connection to the PD sensors on multiple assets.
The monitors are connected to a server where the HVPD Kronos® WebView (a web-based platform) brings the asset condition data from mulitple monitors and sites together in a simple user interface. This provides an ability to navigate across all sites and focus on individual assets.
The HVPD Kronos® monitor is suitable for continuous PD monitoring in all types of in-service plant such as cables, switchgear, transformers, rotating machines and VSD machines.

For quick identification of Partial Discharge
The PDS InsightTM 2 is a portable on-line PD detection unit for condition-based maintenance and substation access safety.
Lightweight and simple to use, this detection unit can be placed in the palm of your hand for safe, reliable testing of switchgear, cables and transformers.
The Phase Resolved Partial Discharge (PRPD) feature in the PDS InsightTM 2 eliminates misleading background noise from the true partial discharge sources, which will help you to avoid in-service failures and costly, unplanned outages.
