From Table II you read across at F to the next column for Class A and obtain the factor Your corrected value of resistance is then: Make sure that capacitance is discharged, by short circuiting and grounding the apparatus before connecting the test leads.

Any convenient length of lead may be used.

Troubleshooting Submersible and Jet Pumps Troubleshooting Submersible Pumps Fuse overload or circuit breaker trips when motor is started 1. Any persistent downward trend is usually fair warning of trouble ahead, even though the readings may be higher than the suggested minimum safe values.

Maximum drying temperatures on windings should. Also make a test of all the components connected together.

If the Guard stltch is used, it may be treated similarly. The increase in resistance for clean and dry insulation occurs in the same manner whether a motor is large or small. Safety Operation More information.


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

Block out disconnect switches. Do not use the instrument in an explosive atmosphere. More recent studies of the problem, however, have resulted in formulas for minimum values megfer insulation resistance that are based on the kind of insulating material used and the electrical and physical dimensions of the types of equipment under consideration. They must be observed during use. Bhatia Continuing Education and Development, Inc.

Effect of Capacitance Capacitance in apparatus under test must be charged up to the rated DC voltage of the Megger insulation tester, and maintained for 30 to 60 seconds before a final reading is taken. With the DC test, you get a more qualitative picture; stich can meter the leakage current as you increase the voltage and obtain specific values of insulation resistance.

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

Shock Hazard from Test Voltage Observe the voltage rating of the Megger instrument and regard it with appropriate caution.

As shown schematically in Fig. Take care in this respect. Therefore, rather than removing a workmen s ground in order to make a test, it is more advisable to disconnect the apparatus, such as a transformer or circuit breaker, from the exposed bus or line, ti,e the latter grounded.

In this Investigation you will build circuits.

A Stitch In Time

You run the voltage up to the selected value and the equipment either passes or doesn t pass the test. Electricity also flows through the volume of metger insulation. And sttich can to varying degrees. The outline can be used to review the course before conducting. Megger invented More information. Even if the equipment to be tested is idle, the same is true so long as its temperature is kept above the dew point.


However, some plants, particularly with higher voltage ratings in equipment, use another Megger product the dielectric test set. Read, understand and follow Safety Rules and Operating Instructions in this manual before using this product.

It is always preferable to disconnect the component parts and test them separately in order to determine where un exist. When your plant electrical system and equipment are new, the electrical insulation should be in top notch shape.

Large electrical equipment stich cables usually have sufficient capacitance to store up a dangerous amount of energy from the test current. Affordable, sturdy, reliable Portable, battery-powered. Megger instruments are frequently equipped with discharge circuits for this purpose. Make future tests with the same length of operating time. Support the lead only by its connections to the instrument and the apparatus.
