Capacitors and indicator or pilot lamps must be disconnected or an inaccurate test reading will result. Sir,one 40MVA Transformer which was in service for 3 years. Definitely there will be a temperature rise of 10 degree Celsius from cold to No-load running.

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 I.r.teeting ohm or as specified by the Bureau of Indian Standards] from time to time.

Abdulhameed Jul 01, All LV surge diverter earth connections are to be disconnected during the test. Jignesh Parmar Jignesh Parmar has completed M. Is there any IR lower-limit for turn-to-turn insulation in random wound low voltage electric motors? Ronal Manuel Nov 09, To i.r.testkng the other, both two-way switches should be operated and the system retested.


A little knowledge is dangerous. We need to test winding to winding and winding to ground E. Qaisar Feb 02, IR Value for Panel Bus 8.

This cause deterioration of the insulation, as well as involving a waste of energy which would increase the running costs of the installation. For insulation testing, we need to disconnect from panel or equipment and keep them isolated from power .ir.testing.

Tech Power System Control ,B. Thanks for your article. At a pressure 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.

Measurement of insulation resistance IR — Part 1. Vincenzo Dec 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.
