A measuring system for the digital acquisition of partial discharge (PD) pulse signals, based on the last generation of oscilloscopes, has been developed in order to perform both PD pulse shape and PD pulse height analysis. Wide-band, fast sampling rate and individually-triggerable memory blocks are available for the acquisition of PD pulse signals. However, a problem of sampling the population of PD pulses arises from the limited available on-line storage memory. Four sampling techniques are investigated and evaluated in order to record an amount of PD pulses which enables PD stochastic inference for a minimum of the on-line memory use. Some statistical indexes based on the pulse-height and pulse-phase distributions are used to compare performances of the different techniques. It is shown that a technique based on the Poisson law provides the most accurate sampling of PD pulses, while minimizing the memory, particularly in the presence of two simultaneously active PD phenomena. The developed procedure enables an accurate analysis of the shape of a large number of PD signals, but also stochastic processing of height distributions, which is becoming a reference for PD pattern analysis
