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 .

He is Presently associate with one of the leading business group as a Deputy Manager at Ahmedabad,India. Guard the terminals to eliminate surface leakage over terminal bushings.

Krishnaiah Oct 24, Apply the test voltage and note the reading. Solidly grounded winding must have the ground removed in order to measure the insulation resistance of the winding grounded. Please can you help me to know the maximium fire resistance temperture for the follow fire cable with following specifiction: What is the reason? Can any one explain the Reason??? Vilas Pathak Mar 18, I need to know the HV and Megger test voltage value and routine tests to be performed for medium voltage 6.

Medium and Low Voltage Installations- At a pressure of V applied between each live conductor and earth for a period of one minute, the insulation resistance of medium and low voltage installations shall be at least 1 Mega ohm or as specified by the Bureau of Indian Standards] from time to time.


Facebook Linkedin Google Plus Twitter. For most windings made before aboutall field windings, and others not described below.

Electrical engineering practitioners should always read and understand the appropriate guidance, incorrect information is misleading. To whomever this may concern, whilst the information contained on this website is u.r.testing, it is no substitute for the application of competent electrical engineering by experienced practitioners.

It was found that the reading was less with oil than without oil. In the case of a very large installation where there are many earth paths in parallel, the reading would be expected to be lower. For any installation, the i.r.tdsting resistance measured shall i.r.testint be less than: Vincenzo Dec 30, Steps for measuring the IR of Transformer: Discharge the winding capacitance.

Adam Edmont Mbulawa Jun 17, Sagar Vaghasiya Feb 03, Sir,one 40MVA Transformer which was in service for 3 years. Abdulhameed Jul 01, Ronal Manuel Nov 09, Thoroughly clean all bushings Short circuit the windings.

Measurement of insulation resistance (IR) – Part 2

Motor Out off I.r.tssting Without Cable. Prageeth Mar 05, I think is tertiary winding. Transformer windings are never left floating for insulation resistance measurements.

i.r.tfsting Aniruddha Bhattacharjee Nov 04, Leave a Comment Click here to cancel reply. I wish to thank the author for making this information available to the general public who could be harmed as a consequence. IR Value for Transformer Ref: The transformer Neutral i.r.testlng is to be disconnected from earth during the test.


Measurement of insulation resistance IR — 2. Is there any IR lower-limit for turn-to-turn insulation in random wound low voltage electric motors? Measurement of insulation resistance IR — Part 1.

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

Auto Transformer three winding 1. For insulation testing, we need to disconnect from panel or equipment and keep them isolated from power supply. A Guide to Transformer Maintenance by. Insulation resistance tests are commonly measured directly i.r.festing megohms or may be calculated from measurements of applied voltage and leakage current.

A Very I.rr.testing Article Request to mentioned the source of the information provided. IR Value for Tap Changer 4. IR Value of Submersible Motor. Virendra Nathe Tiwari Jun 12, Very useful articleI appreciate your efferots to collect all these indexes and values in one paper Thank you….

Continued from first part: Arunkumar Dec 12, The IR tests must be carried out between Phase-Phase-Neutral-Earth with a i.r.tssting acceptable value for each test of 0.

Avoid meggering when the transformer is under vacuum. 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.
