English term or phrase: transient earth voltage
Pour un système d'alarme pour installations électriques :

The instrument uses two technologies for measuring partial discharge activity – electromagnetic detection of transient earth voltages (TEVs) and ultrasonic detection. The combination ensures that discharge activity is accurately identified, both internal to or on the surface of the switchgear insulation.
