This paper introduces a novel insulation diagnosis approach for Partial Discharge (PD) pattern recognition using an ensemble Neural Network (NN) system, comprising of a limited number of NNs trained for the same purpose. The training data for the ensemble NN comprises statistical parameters obtained from different PD measurements of corona from a point-to-plane geometry. The ensemble output gives the weighted average of the output of each NN which is determined by the respective certainties of… CONTINUE READING
