Partial discharge (PD) monitoring is an effective online predictive maintenance test for medium-voltage (MV) motors, MV generators, and MV switchgear at 4160 V and above, as well as other electrical distribution equipment. The benefits of online testing allow for equipment analysis and diagnostics during normal production. Corrective actions can be planned and implemented, resulting in reduced unscheduled downtime. An understanding of the theory related to PD, and the relationship to early detection of insulation deterioration is required to properly evaluate this predictive maintenance tool. This paper presents a theory to promote the understanding of PD technology, as well as various implementation and measurement techniques that have evolved in the industry. Data interpretation, corrective actions, and application to electrical distribution equipment is also reviewed
