Transformer Testing


The Role of Thermal Imagining in Today’s Electrical Utilities Sector

In today’s society we are faced with many obstacles, one of these obstacles is the high cost of electricity around the world.  Electricity prices for commercial, industrial and institutional have increased a considerable amount.  There are many reasons why this is occurring, including the lack...

Dielectric Voltage Testing – Standard Methods

There are two standard methods from ASTM International: D877, Standard Test Method for Dielectric Breakdown Voltage of Insulating Liquids Using Disk Electrodes, and D1816, Standard Test Method for Dielectric Breakdown Voltage of Insulating Oils of Petroleum Origin Using VDE Electrodes. VDE stands...

ACCELERATING TOWARDS GREATER TESTING EFFICIENCY - A true transformer test van

Test lead management, including quality of connection and correct lead placement, is an important part of testing. Poor or incorrect connections can be the culprit for nonrepresentative results that ultimately lead to longer test times and, in some cases, wasteful investigations to diagnose transformer problems that do not exist.

The time required to perform electrical testing is mostly influenced by the time involved during test set-up and breakdown. Therefore improving test efficiency largely becomes a matter of improving lead management. Solutions are emerging...
