Depending on the method of inspection, as well as application and installation, a great deal of time and effort could be invested in verifying the electrical health and integrity of electrical insulation. However, insulation resistance tests can be a relatively quick and effortless method of inspecting insulation.  This type of test can be applied to practically any electrical insulation.  Test results are recorded, trended, and if appropriate, compared to manufacturer's recommendations or industry standards and guidelines.  A good insulator should have a very high resistance to leakage current. Environmental, electrical and mechanical stresses can aid in exploiting voids and the development of microscopic cracks. These phenomenon permit increased access for contaminants to migrate into the insulator or insulating systems. When this happens, there is an increased potential for electrical faults and system failures, which relates to compromised reliability of the electrical system.Contact Us Now

Diagnostics of medium and high voltage cables provides the opportunity for early detection of weaknesses and preventative maintenance work to be carried out before the cable fails in service. Partial Discharge diagnostics (PD) allows a precise analysis of cables and their joints and terminations. Tan Delta diagnostics (TD) provides a clear statement about the overall dielectric condition of aged polymeric cables.

Transformers can sometimes experience significant physical stresses whenever they are moved from one location to another, such as when they are initially shipped from the manufacturer. Once they have been placed into service transformers can also experience tremendous stresses related to being in the path of fault currents when something goes wrong in the electrical system. The combination of mechanical and electrical stress can cause the transformer to prematurely fail. Symptoms may not be obvious until the damage is already extensive. Performing sweep frequency response tests can be used as an early identifier problems that occur as a result of physical changes within the transformer.

Vanguard's EZCT series of current transformer testers are designed to be rugged and portable, ideal for industrial and field applications. They can perform the CT excitation, polarity and ratio tests. These testers allow you to test current transformers in their field-mounted configuration. This reduces the need to remove the CT from the host electrical component.

Locating cable problems through visual inspection, continuity and insulation resistance testing can be difficult and time-consuming especially on long installations. To help you save time, effort and money in troubleshooting cables, consider using a Time Domain Reflectometer. This diagnostic tool is very efficient and accurate because it can help localize the fault from where you are in a matter of seconds. After prelocating the fault, you can then run other diagnostic techniques to verify the defect. Time domain reflectometry is not only effective in finding faults in electrical cables. It can also be used for various installations for cellular, telephone and cable TV installations.Contact Us Now
