Why thermal imaging on High Voltage (HV) systems?
Thermal imaging inspections, completed effectively, are unparalleled in their ability to safely and quickly identify electrical defects that if left undetected would cause significant implications to the integrity of substation assets and unplanned system outages.
A thermal imaging survey can identify defects including transformer & reactor cooling blockages, low water levels in liquid earthing resistors, insulator breakdown, together high resistances within busbar joints & isolator contacts, and poor connections to HV assets such as circuit breakers, transformers, reactors, current & voltage transformers.
Thermographic Survey Approach and Methodology
Our survey approach has been tailored over many years to ensure thermographic inspections are carried out safely and non-intrusively, causing no disruption to business operations whilst providing a full audit trail of the health of the equipment that has been inspected.
Each inspection is fully risk assessed with clear method statements and completed by PCN/ITC certified thermographers (ISO 18436:7). A systematic approach is applied to each individual substation to ensure all energised HV assets are inspected and examined for defects that are often detected for the specific equipment.
Our survey reports clearly present all defects that are identified together with providing commentary regarding suspected causes, recommended remedial action together with guidance on how to prioritise the urgency of remedial works.
Please contact us if you require a sample report.
