62582-6 - IEEE/IEC Draft International Standard - Nuclear power plants -- Instrumentation and control important to safety -- Electrical equipment condition monitoring methods. Part 6: Insulation resistance

Insulation resistance measurement is the most commonly applied method for indication of the condition of insulating components, primarily cable insulators, during Design Basis Event (DBE). A minimum value of the Insulation Resistance (IR) of cables is generally prescribed to be exceeded throughout the DBE simulation, in order to assure a margin to the dielectric conditions at which malfunction of equipment connected to the cable may occur. In the DBE simulation, temperature, condensing moisture and the penetration of moisture into the insulator varies with time. The purpose of the standard is to define methods which can be applied for detection of the lowest IR value in the time varying climatic conditions of DBE simulation. To achieve this, limited time is available for each measurement.
