SEPULVEDA DURAN, Edwin Fernando  and  MARTINEZ SANTA, Fernando. Partial discharges detection through ultraviolet radiation in medium and high voltage networks in Colombia. Tecnura [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.68, pp.63-78.  Epub Aug 14, 2021. ISSN 0123-921X.


To show the scope of using the partial discharge measurement technique through ultraviolet radiation, applied on the Colombian electrical infrastructure according to international references, as well as define the characteristics of the physical phenomena involved.


Starting from the available bibliography, the characteristics of partial discharges are defined, providing information on measuring equipment and measurement techniques, and finally to establish the degree of incursion of this technique in the Colombian industry.


Colombia is a consumer of technology developed by other countries (Gallego & Gutiérrez, 2016), specifically the coronographic inspections are carried out by large industries in the energy sector, this kind of measurement is rare in the national industry, where there are very few companies that offer the service.


The coronography technique is expensive to be used in small enterprises, however, in large industries, its application is justified due to it prevents large stops in industrial processes.

Keywords : partial discharge; corona effect; electromagnetic spectrum; ultraviolet radiation; coronography..
