Automated monitoring of partial discharges in generator winding

Application software for measurement, acquisition and displaying the distribution of pulses irregularities sinusoid voltage on the generator, by using the device PDA Watch - Partial Discharge Monitor is developed in LabVIEW software. Application software is running on a PC that is connected to the RS-485 network that provides  access to PDA Watch devices and PLCs. In addition to the acquisition of data from these devices, the software enables data acquisition from a central database via the Ethernet interface. For the purposes of accepting data from PDA Watch devices user-defined protocol was developed. LabVIEW supports a huge number of protocols and interfaces and provides the ability to create user-defined protocols, as well as easy connection to ODBC and SQL-compatible databases.
