A method of remote sensing of stress and monitoring of partial discharge (PD) in High Voltage (HV) cable system is discussed in this paper. A concept of monitoring and detection of High voltage stress high voltage cables is proposed. Monitoring of HV cables can be done by I2C protocol using embedded technology. To obtain efficient performance voltage stress can be measured at every one kilometer through master slave concept. The collected data will stored in master controller. PIC micro controller has been implemented as master. In case of any irregular voltage stress is detected across HV cable, necessary step will be done using step down transformer in input side and step up transformer in output side. Hence the balanced output in HV cables will be obtained.
