Electrical traction machines in electric vehicles are normally fed by converters with DC link voltages up to 800 V. The resulting voltage pulses place particular stress on the insulating system of the drivetrain. In order to be able to investigate insulating material samples, e.g. twisted pair enameled wire, with voltages of different shapes and high frequency, a shielded experimental
setup for the investigation of partial discharges (PD) at low voltages and high frequencies is presented. A medium frequency transformer with a frequency range up to 2500 Hz is used for this purpose, fed by a linear power amplifier on the primary side. The amplifier has a slew rate of 52 V/μs and is capable of sourcing various voltage waveforms such as sinusiodal, triangular
or rectangular, with a maximum frequency of 30 kHz. Electrical PD measuring methods according to IEC 60270 as well as acoustic and optical measurement methods are applied for PD diagnosis. The experimental setup is intended to demonstrate the possibilities and limitations of conventional PD diagnostics for nonsinusoidal voltages. Focus is placed on the application of filters, the damping behavior of the step-up transformer and the rise times of the voltages.
