This standard adopts IEC 60270:2000 and defines methods of measuring partial discharges that may occur in energized power switchgear apparatus, in flaws, voids, and interfaces of non-self restoring insulation that may lead to dielectric failure of the switchgear.

Standard for High-Voltage Switchgear (Above 1000 V) Test Techniques--Partial Discharge Measurements
This international standard defines methods of measuring and interpretation of Partial Discharges (PD) that may occur in energized AC power switchgear (rated above 1000 V). The standard is structured around the 5 main processes of partial discharge measurement and assessment; 1- Generation, 2- Propagation, 3- Detection, 4- Interpretation, 5- Reporting. This document defines apparent charge based and non-charged based methodologies. Guidance is given for instrumentation and calibration techniques for off-line and on-line measurement.
