various cable testing methods. The choice of the right method and the most appropriate instrument Before moving on to the main hipot testing techniques, it is. that you understand the proper setup and use of our hi-pot testers. Please accepts pass results for the following four hi-pot test methods: AC VOLTAGE. Hipot testing involves using a high potential (voltage) to test insulation. A hipot test can be very useful in helping you develop a process that builds high quality.

The peak value of this current may be very high, reflecting the energy stored in the capacitance of the winding. Chickenhawk Aug 12, This can be done on both types of cables?

The windings have capacitance. The content is copyrighted to EEP and may not be reproduced on other websites.

The hipot tester current trip level should be set high enough to avoid nuisance failure related to leakage current and, at the same time, low enough not to overlook a true breakdown in insulation. Normally a spam is not supposed to recognize such thing, and will not be able to proceed further. What is the difference in measuring leakage current and partial discharge while performing Dielectric tests.

Approximate what will be the total time required to conduct 2 sec HIPOT test for cable having approximate length of 2 M and connector at both ends? Facebook Linkedin Google Plus Twitter. Palwinder Singh Jan 30, It has been suggested that this article be merged into Dielectric withstand test. What is the permissible leakage current value for a 11kv cable. Electrical test equipment Electronic test equipment. The currents are the same currents present in an insulation resistance test: The test voltage is increased until the dielectric fails, or breaks down, allowing too much current to flow.


Other examples include identifying a pinhole defect in insulation or finding an enlarged solder footprint.

What is HIPOT Testing (Dielectric Strength Test)?

Traditionally, hipot is a term given to a class of electrical safety testing instruments used to verify electrical insulation in finished appliances, cables or other wired assemblies, printed circuit boards procrdure, electric motorsand transformers. Testing a contact in this fashion makes sure it is isolated from all other contacts.

This current typically drops to zero within seconds after the test voltage provided by the motor tester is stable.

The theory behind the test is that if a deliberate over-application of test voltage does not cause the insulation to break down, the product will be safe to procedyre under normal operating conditions—hence the name, Dielectric Withstanding Voltage test. It means your installation should be renovated with new cables and apparatus. Once this has been achieved, then the leakage current trip level should be set to a slightly higher value than the average figure. Syamdas Nov 14, Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

However, it is a good practice to always ensure that a product is discharged, regardless of the test voltage or its nature, before it is handled.

How DC Hipot Tests Work

What settings do you set the Fluke Multimeter to? The currents are the same currents present in an insulation resistance test:. Im curious to how you came up with the rule of thumb for the test voltage. Articles needing hlpot references from August All articles needing additional references Articles to be merged from January All articles to be merged Articles with Curlie links.


Do we need to test Hipot test before Functional test or after Functional test? I A — Absorption current: Therefore, if we use dc test voltage, we ensure that the dc test voltage is under root 2 or 1. Girish R Nair Jul 27, It generally consists of:. This test allows designers to estimate the breakdown voltage of a product’s design and to see where the breakdown occurred.

A hipot tester can be very similar to a cable tester and often the two are combined into a single device.

Most safety standards allow the user to disconnect the Y capacitors prior to testing or, alternatively, to use a dc hipot tester.

Thanks alot for this very usefull idea.

procedurw Tech Power System Control ,B. I L — Surface conduction current: Juan Pena Mar 28, Surat Apr 06, Hossein It is easy, go on spread sheet, design your sheet. Let me know if you have any query. One of the advantages of an ac hipot test is that it can check both voltage polarities, whereas a dc test charges the insulation in only one polarity. Dear Jigu, I want an insulation for instrumentation purpose from readily available insulation polymers that can be molded which has very low leakage in the range of femtoamps, I am basicaly interested in measuring current in that range, Operating voltage is in the range of Vdc to v DC.

Based in our calculation we can correlate the periodicity in inches of the spikes. Hipot test makes surety of no current will flow from one point to another point.
