Based on the wavelet transform filtering theory, the chapter will describe the elaboration of a wavelet threshold function intended for the denoising of the partial discharge phenomenon measurements. This new function, conveniently named Fleming threshold, is based on the logistic function, which is well known for its utility in several important areas. In the development is shown some variations in the application of the Fleming function, in an attempt to identify the decomposition levels where the thresholding process must be more stringent and those where it can be more lenient, which increases its effectiveness in the removal of noisy coefficients. The proposed function and its variants demonstrate excellent results compared to other wavelet thresholding methods already described in the literature, including the famous Hard and Soft functions.
