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.

This current typically drops to zero within seconds after the test voltage provided by the motor tester is stable. Surat Apr 06, A minor disadvantage of the ac hipot tester is that if the circuit under test has large pprocedure of Y capacitors, then, depending on the current trip setting of the hipot tester, the ac tester could indicate a failure.

Views Read Edit View history. For new, totally clean, and dry motors this current should be zero or near zero. Ahmed Oct 26, Sarah Nichols Dec 07, One of the advantages of using a dc test voltage is that the leakage current trip can be set to a much lower value than that of an ac test voltage.


It can be applied at higher levels without risk or injuring good insulation. Your article of hipot is very good and easy to digest, I would like to contact you to ask some direction to solve an issue. This failure condition can cause a shock to anyone that comes into contact with the faulty product. Chickenhawk Aug 12, But I need to know what is the acceptable range of leakage current.

Hipot – Wikipedia

Joey Dec 15, By monitoring the current flow as voltages increase, an operator can detect a potential insulation breakdown before it occurs. Yet due to design flaws or other factors, the insulation in a product can break down, resulting in excessive leakage current flow.

Is there any Standard for the amount of allowable leakage current during the High-Pot testing of Switchgears?. I L — Surface conduction current: Dear Sir, Is there any Standard for the amount of allowable leakage current during the High-Pot testing of Switchgears?. What is the difference in measuring leakage current and partial discharge while performing Dielectric tests. Usual problem, but still I am not cleared…If there is any acceptable leakage current value is there during Hi-pot test, please share with us.

How DC Hipot Tests Work

Himanshu Behera Mar 29, The DC voltage potential in the windings is rapidly raised to a predetermined level, or raised in steps up to this level, depending on what test method is used.

Other examples include identifying a pinhole defect in insulation or finding an enlarged solder footprint. Tech Power System Control ,B. Hossein It is easy, go on spread sheet, design your sheet. What is the allowable leakage procdure during hipot test.


In a typical hipot test, high voltage is applied between a product’s current-carrying conductors and its metallic shielding. I have 5 Electrolytic Caps connected in parallel to the input terminals. Nice work for engineer to learn. Based in our calculation we can correlate the periodicity in inches of the spikes.

The cables run underground; one end comes up parallel feed the steel structure of a switch-yard, and the other end to a utility wooden pole and are braced to a cross-arm — The 15kv terminations are installed and left to be tested on both ends.

The current that flows is monitored to verify that it is low enough. The test duration must be in accordance with the safety standard being used.

These three tests differ in the amount of voltage applied and the amount or nature of acceptable current flow:. Surge absorber, CT, and busbar still connecting to cable. Currents as a function of time during a DC Hipot test. DC voltage is applied to open disconnected windings by the Hipot tester or motor analyzer.
