A location estimation system for online Partial Discharge (PD) detection is proposed as a low-cost approach to real-time condition monitoring, asset management and operation optimization in future smart grid. Some early progress in the development of subsystems (specifically the antenna, radiometer device, PD emulator and PD generator) for a proof-of-principle prototype system is described. The proposed PD Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) uses a novel approach to PD location which obviates the need for synchronization between sensors thereby improving scalability.
