A STITCH IN TIME MEGGER PDF

Moogular Note that if you conduct insulation resistance tests during drying, and you have readings of previous tests on the dry equipment, you ll know when you ve reached the safe value for the unit. Electrical Resistance Resistance R Electrical Resistance Resistance R Any device in a circuit which converts electrical energy into some other form impedes the current. To understand insulation testing you really don t need to go into the mathematics of electricity, but one simple equation Ohm s law can be very helpful in appreciating many aspects. Maximum drying temperatures on windings should. A record of the relative humidity near the equipment at the time of the test is also helpful in evaluating the reading and trend.

Zulkisho For every 10 C increase in temperature, halve the resistance; or, for every 10 C decrease, double the resistance. With the DC test, you get a meger qualitative picture; you can meter the leakage current as you increase the voltage and obtain specific values of insulation resistance. As negger test voltage increases, both the cost and weight of AC equipment go up much faster than with comparable DC test equipment. The heavy-duty series of Megger insulation testers can be used on large capacitors with good results, particularly when operated from the power line rather than the hand crank.

What was good insulation has become a partial conductor. Insulation resistance testing resistance testing Application Note Introduction resistance testers can be used to determine the integrity of windings or cables in motors, transformers, switchgear, and electrical installations.

How to Apply the Temperature Correction Factor The purpose of this document is to take the confusion out of power on voltage ratings in specifications and in product information publications. Lugs should be fitted for attaching to the instrument terminals, and stout spring clips are recommended for connecting to the apparatus or circuit under test.

Electricity Investigation 20A We use electricity every day, nearly every minute! Explosion and Fire Hazard So far as is known, there is no fire hazard in the normal use of a Megger insulation tester.

There are a number of things that affect current, including temperature of the insulation and humidity, as mentioned in the previous section. Offhand, you d probably say this is ok. Test wet equipment while drying out.

This small amount of current would not, of course, harm good insulation but would be a problem if the insulation has deteriorated. Do not correct slight lead leakage by attempting to reset the Infinity Adjuster on a high-range instrument. Figure 1 Comparison of sttch flow a with electric current b.

Measuring the capacitance of the test object 4. Joints are to be avoided. This is simply the charge flowing into and out of the capacitance and through the deflecting coil of the ohmmeter. Remember that we spoke of the kinds of current produced in mevger by DC?

If you want to make reliable comparisons between readings, you should correct the readings to a base temperature, such as 20 C, or take all your readings at approximately the same temperature usually not difficult to do.

Current Leakage at Switches When apparatus is shut down for the insulation resistance test, make sure that the readings are not affected by leakage over or through switches or fuse blocks, etc. If the pipe were to spring a leak, you d waste water and lose some water pressure. The Model provides three test ranges plus continuity. See page 24 on Preparation of Apparatus for Test. They can be quite different for one motor or tine tested three days in a row, yet not mean bad insulation.

Check for loose, missing, broken or corroded hardware, pivot pins, cotter pins, shitch and other mechanical More information. It will also test 6 or Back to the Basics Current Transformer CT Testing As test equipment becomes more sophisticated with better features and accuracy, we risk turning our field personnel into test set operators instead of.

A Stitch In Time Megger Insights You can use a blast of hot air, an oven, circulation of current through conductors, or a combination of techniques. However, if you ve got salt water, you must first wash away the salt with fresh water. It is always preferable to disconnect the component parts and test them separately in order to determine where weaknesses exist.

Capacitance effects are most noticeable in large generators, in power and communication cable more than a few hundred feet in length, and in capacitors.

When your plant electrical system and equipment are new, the electrical insulation should be in top notch shape. Figure 8 Typical curves showing dielectric absorption effect in a time-resistance test, made on capacitive equipment such as s large motor winding.

For insulation resistance readings to be a conclusive measure of the condition of the equipment being tested, these variables must be taken into consideration. So, a suitable way of measuring resistance can tell you how good the insulation is. Odyssey of the Mind Technology Fair. TOP Related Articles.

Power Transformers Figure 19 Connections for testing insulation resistance of a transformer high voltage winding and bushings, and the high tension disconnect switch, in parallel, with reference to the low voltage winding and ground. Note that the low voltage winding is grounded for this test. AC Generators Figure 20 With this connection, the insulation resistance will be that of the generator stator winding and connecting cable combined. To test either the stator winding or the cable itself, the cable must be disconnected at the machine. Take care in this respect.
