High Voltage Test on Radio

High Voltage Test on Radio: Many electrical apparatuses like transformers, line conductors, rotating machines, etc. produce unwanted electrical signals in the radio and high frequency (television band, microwave bands, etc.) ranges. These signals arise due to corona discharges in air, internal or partial discharges in the insulation, sparking at commutators and brush gear in rotating […]

High Voltage Testing of Surge Arrester

High Voltage Testing of Surge Arrester: In modern practices, surge arrester or lightning arresters are the most reliable apparatus to protect the power system against transient voltages due to lightning and switching surges. They are invariably used from distribution voltages (400 V) to highest system transmission voltages of 765 kV or above. Hence, testing them […]

High Voltage Test on Cables

High Voltage Test on Cables: Cables are very important electrical apparatus for transmission of electrical energy by underground means. They are also very important means for transmitting voltage signals at High Voltage Test on Cables. For power engineers, large power transmission cables are of importance, and hence testing of power cables only is considered here. […]

High Voltage Test on Circuit Breaker and Isolators

High Voltage Test on Circuit Breaker and Isolators: High Voltage Test on Circuit Breaker and Isolators is covered, giving common characteristics for both. While these characteristics are directly relevant to the testing of circuit breakers, they are not much relevant as far as the testing of isolators are concerned since isolators are not used for […]

High Voltage Testing Techniques

High Voltage Testing Techniques: High Voltage Testing Techniques are classified into two groups: power frequency voltage tests; and impulse voltage tests. These tests together ensure the overvoltage withstand capability of an apparatus. The Basics Terminology techniques of the technicial terms are Definitions: In test codes and standard specifications, certain technical terms are used to specify […]
