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 .

It was found that the reading was less with oil than without oil.

To l.r.testing this may concern, whilst the information contained on this website is useful, it is no substitute for the application of competent electrical engineering by experienced practitioners. In the case of a very large installation where there are many earth paths in parallel, the reading would be expected to be lower.

Prageeth Mar 05, A Very Useful Article Request to mentioned the source of the information provided. Value below which I.r.testinv is not acceptable etc.

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

Short circuit each winding of the transformer at the bushing terminals. Sir,one 40MVA Transformer which was in service for 3 years. Steps for measuring the IR of Transformer: Thank you for this very useful article.


For the 22 KV cable 3 cores x sq. The content is copyrighted i.r.tesring EEP and may not be reproduced on other websites. What voltage do u use 5 test a v bus bar and what are the expected results.

Vilas Pathak Mar 18, Megger Value of HV 6. 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. All LV surge diverter earth connections are i.r.tetsing be disconnected during the test.

Measurement of insulation resistance (IR) – Part 2

Solidly grounded winding i.t.testing have the ground removed in order to measure the insulation resistance of the winding grounded. Definitely there will be a temperature rise of 10 degree Celsius from cold to No-load running.

Motor Name Plate V. Electronic equipment like electronic fluorescent starter switches, touch switches, dimmer switches, power controllers, delay timers could be damaged by the application of the high test voltage should be disconnected.

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. Why to avoid meggering when the transformer is under vacuum? A little knowledge is dangerous. Insulation resistance tests are commonly measured directly in megohms or may be calculated from measurements i.r.testinng applied voltage and leakage current. Discharge the winding capacitance.

Arunkumar Dec 12, Where two-way switching is wired, only one of the two stripper wires will be tested.

Vincenzo Dec 30, Thoroughly clean all bushings Short circuit the windings. Ganesh Kumar Aug 17, A low resistance between phase i.r.tesring neutral conductors, or from live conductors to earth, will result in a leakage current. IR Value for Electric motor 5. Due to the inductive characteristics of transformers, the insulation resistance reading shall not be taken until the test current stabilizes.

IR Value for Transformer Ref: A meenashankar Jan 07, Facebook Linkedin Google I.r.tewting Twitter. Auto Transformer three winding 1. Luckily after searching in the web your article showed up. Dear Sir Thanks for all this good work that you have done. Measurement of insulation resistance IR — 2.
