This article is intended to present an evaluation on the automation capability in the analysis of insulators of conventional grid by processing the signals generated by ultrasound detectors. The insulators analyzed were removed from the electrical system in various conditions, as well as new insulators. The methodology adopted was a practical analysis of qualitative and quantitative way. The audible noise generated by the output of ultrasound equipment is connected to a personal computer to obtain the FFT signal through LabVIEW software. The characteristic of the FFT signal is used to classify inspected components online, allowing for quick and precise procedure, as shown in the results obtained in this study.
