SPTS 2010: Electrical Testing Basics: What You Need to Know to Succeed Part 1
Electrical power system analysis starts with a core set of instruments and analysis techniques. Understanding the fundamentals is absolutely necessary in order to assess the health of your equipment.
This seminar is offered in two parts. Some of the most common electrical test equipment and theory will be covered, including use of a megohmmeter, insulation power factor, dc winding resistance and microhmmeter. These tests will be related back to the ANSI/NETA MTS-2007 standard.
Beginning with basic principles for each test, the seminar will cover specific tests for transformers, circuit breakers (air, vacuum, oil, and gas), switchgear, and switches.
