High Potential Testing Motor Windings with Very Low Frequency

  • Article rating: No rating
Article

High potential (hipot) testing procedures for motor and generator windings are usually performed with 50/60 Hz AC or DC as the power source. Hipot testing is a critical step in validating the quality of new windings. AC and DC hipot tests are also useful to understand the condition of aged insulation for machines in service. The disadvantage of the AC test at power frequency is when the size of the test set and/or complexity of the setup becomes problematic in motor repair and in the field. And the DC test stresses the end turns more. The very low frequency (VLF) test set has been successfully used to bridge the test gap between AC and DC hipot tests.
