To prevent a painful shock, the capacitor must be discharged before its atitch. Do not use the instrument in an explosive atmosphere. In summary, here are some general observations about how you can interpret periodic insulation resistance tests, and what you should do with the result: If the insulation contains much moisture or contaminants, the absorption effect is masked by a high leakage current which stays at a fairly constant value, keeping the resistance reading low remember: See also Discharge of Capacitance, page We will cover some general guides to temperature correction.

For rotating machinery with Class B insulation. To use this website, you must agree to our Privacy Tlmeincluding cookie policy. The stitcj must be just the opposite from a conductor: Similarly, such an instrument is better adapted for large cables, bushings, transformers and switchgear.

The Complete Guide to Electrical Insulation Testing A STITCH IN TIME 1

This condition may be caused by uniformly distributed leakages of a harmless nature, and may not be the result of a dangerous localized stitdh. The clip on the Line lead is connected to the apparatus under test in the regular way. AC frequently is used for high-potential testing; voltage is increased to some specified point to see if the insulation can stand that particular voltage.


The typical drying-out curve for a DC motor armature Fig. Test tie foreign or induced voltages. Connections for testing insulation resistance of electrical equipment The following diagrams show how to connect a Megger insulation tester to various types of electrical equipment.

Such checks permit planned reconditioning before service failure.

A Stitch In Time | Megger Insights

Condition a Fair to high values and well maintained. The device which converts electrical energy to heat energy is termed. In various degrees, these enemies of insulation are at work as time goes on combined with the electrical stresses that exist. Insulation resistance should be approximately one megohm for each 1, volts of operating voltage, with a minimum value of one megohm.

This method is nondestructive; that is, it does not cause deterioration of the insulation. Use rubber gloves when connecting the test leads to the apparatus and while operating the Megger instrument.

The curves of Fig. Uninsulated Leads To avoid error due to the insulation of leads, place the Megger instrument close to the ungrounded terminal or conductor of the apparatus under test and connect a short piece of light bare wire directly from the Line terminal of im instrument to the apparatus. One thumb rule is: Also, whether the temperature was above or below the ambient. Used to describe an insulation material, good would also mean the ability to keep a high resistance.

This is simply the charge flowing into and out of the capacitance and through the deflecting coil of the ohmmeter.

Megger ‘A Stitch in Time’ Information Booklet on Insulation Testing

This meter is of special construction with both current and voltage coils, enabling true ohms to be read directly, independent of the actual voltage applied. In a series of lecture on basic electronics, learning by doing, we now. If you More information. If the pipe were to spring a leak, you d waste water and lose some water pressure.


AC Generators Figure 20 With this connection, the insulation resistance will be that of the generator stator winding and connecting cable combined. The Repository of Alternator Knowledge As part of our commitment to provide service and expertise, we ve developed this ebook to give our customers a single resource for a wide range of alternator related.

As we ve seen, however, tests by the time-resistance and sttitch methods are relatively independent of temperature effects, giving relative values.

This will be accomplished. This range measures below the Megohm range, and can, therefore, provide an actual measurement to use as a benchmark in monitoring the drying process. Or, time-resistance curves may be taken over a period of 10 to 30 minutes or longer.

Design Description AC Generators come in two basic types synchronous and non-synchronous. Ij tests, insulation resistance. Condition is probably all right, but cause of low values should be checked. Alternately test and dry, watching the readings rise until they reach the Megohm range, at which time higher voltage tests can be safely employed. Using a Digital Multimeter 4.
