Electrical Testing Quiz: Partial Discharge Cable Testing

June 12, 2024
It’s time to test your knowledge on this advanced diagnostic testing technique.

Any electrical professional or technician who performs tests on electrical equipment in the various applications and settings found in the industry must continually adjust to advancing technology and diagnostic testing techniques. Over the years, cable testing has advanced to a point where multiple testing methods can be selected. Oftentimes, clients (site owners) may choose off-line partial discharge (PD) testing as one of their preferred cable testing methods. Let’s see how much you know about off-line partial discharge testing of cables in this six-question quiz. Good luck!

Electrical Testing Education articles are provided by the InterNational Electrical Testing Association (NETA), www.NETAworld.org. NETA was formed in 1972 to establish uniform testing procedures for electrical equipment and systems. Today the association accredits electrical testing companies; certifies electrical testing technicians; publishes the ANSI/NETA Standards for Acceptance Testing, Maintenance Testing, Commissioning, and the Certification of Electrical Test Technicians; and provides training through its annual conferences (PowerTest and EPIC — Electrical Power Innovations Conference) and its expansive library of educational resources.
