For most windings made before aboutall field windings, and others not described below. Can any one explain the Reason??? 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. Virendra Nathe Tiwari Jun 12, For any installation, the insulation resistance measured shall not be less than: IR Value for Substation Equipment 9.

Its urgent, Plz help.

Premium Membership Get access to premium electrical guides, technical articles and much more! Sami Rashed Dec 29, For most dc armature and ac windings built after about form wound coils. Dear Sir, I need to know the HV and Megger i.testing voltage value and routine tests to be performed for medium voltage 6.

Due to the inductive characteristics of transformers, the insulation resistance reading shall not be taken until the test current stabilizes. Is there any IR lower-limit for turn-to-turn insulation in random wound low voltage electric motors?


Measurement of insulation resistance IR ā€” Part 1. Fluke insulation resistance tester up to 10kV Continued from first part: Electronic equipment like electronic fluorescent starter switches, touch switches, dimmer switches, power controllers, delay timers could be damaged by the application of i.r.testting high test voltage should be disconnected.

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

IR Value of Submersible Motor. At a pressure of V applied between each live conductor and earth for a period of one minute the insulation resistance i.r.testkng HV installations shall be at least 1 Mega ohm or as specified by the Bureau of Indian Standards. Where two-way switching is wired, only one of the two stripper wires will be tested. Sir, do you know how to compute the minimum recommended value for busbar?

Why to avoid meggering when the transformer is under vacuum? IR Value for Tap Changer 4. Capacitors and indicator or pilot lamps must be disconnected or an inaccurate test reading will result. This cause deterioration of the insulation, as well as involving a waste of energy which would increase the running costs i.r.testinf the installation.

Motor Name Plate V.

Measurement of insulation resistance (IR) – Part 2

Thanks for your article. Treat it as part of the grounded section of the circuit. The recommended practice in measuring insulation resistance is to always ground the tank and the core. Motor Out off Well Without Cable.


Vincenzo Dec 30, Tashi Tobgay Sep 16, To whomever this may concern, whilst the information contained on this website ii.r.testing useful, it is no substitute for the application of competent electrical engineering by experienced practitioners.

Voltage Rating Of Equipment. Where any equipment is disconnected for testing purposes, it must be subjected to its own insulation test, using a voltage which is not likely to result in damage.

What voltage do u use 5 test a v bus bar and what are the expected results. Definitely there will be a temperature rise of 10 degree Celsius from cold to No-load running. Arunkumar Dec 12, 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. Measurement of insulation resistance IR ā€” 2. Bilel Alibi Jun 07, A Guide to Transformer Maintenance by. Jeevan Ranadive Sep 29, Usha Aug 31, Continued from first part: Due to site constraints the cable could not be disconnected at both ends of the installation, however the circuit breakers were switched off at both ends leaving the neutral and earth connected.

For electric motorwe used a insulation tester to measure the resistance of motor winding with earthing E. Sagar Vaghasiya Feb 03, Jignesh Parmar Jignesh Parmar has completed M.
