All electrical installations and equipment comply with insulation resistance specifications so they can operate safely. Whether it involves the connection cables. IR Testing for Low voltage. Circuit voltage, Test voltage, IR Value(Min). Extra Low Voltage, V DC, MΩ. Up to V except for above. These minimum IR testing voltages must always be adhered to in order to accurately measure the Insulation Resistance in all electrical equipment. Any test .

Motor Name Plate V. Value below which Insulation is not acceptable etc.

Sir, it has been observed that during oil replacement procedure of a power transformer in one of our Substations IR values were taken after draining of oil and after filling with oil. The IR tests must be carried out between Phase-Phase-Neutral-Earth with a minimum acceptable value for each test of 0.

Three winding transformer 1. For most windings made before aboutall field windings, and others not described below.

Why to avoid meggering when the transformer is under vacuum? Thoroughly clean all bushings Short circuit the windings. IR Value for Transformer 3. Value for LT to Earth is coming only 43M-ohm, any one can give me solution. Treat it as part of the grounded section of the circuit. Tashi Tobgay Sep 16, Thanks i.r.texting your article.

IR Value for Panel Bus 8. Insulation resistance tests are commonly measured directly in megohms or may be calculated from measurements of applied voltage and leakage current.

Please email me to my email. I need to know the HV and Megger test voltage value and routine tests to be performed for medium voltage 6. IR Value at Maintenance Time. Resistance measurements are then made between each winding and all other windings grounded. I think is tertiary winding. In addition to the leakage current due to insulation resistance, there is a further current leakage in the reactance of the insulation, because it acts as the dielectric of a capacitor.

Luckily after searching in the web your article showed up. It was found that the reading was less with oil than without oil. To test the other, both two-way switches should be operated and the system retested. Dear Sir Thanks for all this good work that you have done. A little knowledge is dangerous. Short circuit each winding of the transformer at the bushing terminals.

The result must conform with that specified in the British Standard concerned, or be at least 0. Thank u so much sir…. Facebook Linkedin Google Plus Twitter. Insulation resistance tests are made to determine insulation resistance from individual windings to ground or between individual windings. Sagar Vaghasiya Feb 03, What voltage do u use 5 test a v bus bar and what are the expected results. Fluke insulation resistance tester up to 10kV Continued from first part: Very useful articleI appreciate your efferots to collect all these indexes and values in one paper Thank you….

The example you stated mention some thing in contrary See Below. Dear Sir, I need to know the HV and Megger test voltage value and routine tests to be performed for medium voltage 6.

Measurement of insulation resistance (IR) – Part 2

Jayant sahoo Feb 10, Solidly grounded winding must have the ground removed in order to measure the insulation resistance of the i.r.testibg grounded. For the 22 KV cable 3 cores x sq. Is there any IR lower-limit for turn-to-turn insulation in random wound low voltage electric motors? At a l.r.testing of V applied between each live conductor and earth for a period of one minute the insulation resistance of HV installations shall be at least 1 Mega ohm or as specified by the Bureau of Indian Standards.

Shut down the transformer and disconnect the jumpers and lightning arrestors. The transformer Neutral bushing is to be disconnected from earth during the test. Connect the test leads avoid joints.

Benefits of Permanently Installed Automatic Insulation Resistance (IR) Testing: Part 1 of 3

Discharge the winding capacitance. For most machines with random -wound stator coils and form-wound coils rated below 1kV. This current dissipates no energy and is not harmful, but we wish to measure the resistance of the insulation, so DC Voltage is used to prevent reactance from being included in the measurement.

Tech Power System Control ,B. Samer Alamouri Jun 30, Value at 60 seconds after application of the test voltage is referred to as the Insulation Resistance of the transformer at the test temperature.

IR Value for Electrical cable and wiring 6. For most dc armature and ac windings built after about form wound coils. Where two-way switching is wired, only one of i.r.tesitng two stripper wires will be tested.

What is the reason?
