Partial Discharges (PDs) are responsible for unexpected failures in power system equipment, so their measurement is a fundamental tool for electrical equipment maintenance. In order to characterize PDs activity, some statistical magnitudes are necessary. For this purpose, PDs acquisition and processing is an important tool for critical decisions related to power systems. In this paper, the main difficulties and challenges facing PDs detection, acquisition and processing are presented. Results will be compared to a commercial PDs detection system. © 2012 IEEE.
