WHERE CoroCAM SYSTEMS CAN BE USED

GENERATION

Degraded insulation on windings of generators or motors results in reduced efficiency. Partial discharges occurring at these points also cause further damage. During maintenance shutdown CoroCAMs can be used to inspect the disassembled & energized rotor or stator for discharges.

TRANSMISSION

Various Transmission Line hardware can become sources of electrical discharges and may be susceptible to damage by the corona phenomenon.

The necessity for line washing may be indicated by surface arcing.

DISTRIBUTION

Distribution Line hardware are less likely to have detectable corona, but arcing and sparking line faults are just as likely.

The necessity for line washing may be indicated by surface arcing.

SUBSTATION

Various Substation hardware is susceptible to electrical discharges. The necessity for substation washing may be indicated by surface arcing.

CONSUMPTION

The consumption of electricity in various faulty devices can lead to electrical discharges. In many cases the air ionisation my be deteremental to humans nearby.

RESEARCH

Researchers use CoroCAM systems in HV experiments.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Manufacturers of HV equipment use CoroCAM systems to determine if the equipment produced will be discharge free as designed.

DESIGN VALIDATION

Developers of HV equipment use CoroCAM systems to test if the prototypes of new hardware designs / configurations will indeed be discharge free as modeling software indicates.
