IEEE Proposed Recommended Guide for Making Dielectric Measurements in the Field

The following general methods of test are either discussed or referred to in this publication: Low-frequency, low- and high-voltage losscharacteristic measurements. The measurement at power frequencies of power factor, dissipation factor or watts loss and capacitance or charging current; or equivalent quantities which define the electric circuit constants of the test specimen in the voltage range of approximately 80 volts to 50 kilovolts or higher. (2) Alternating-voltage corona measurements. The determination of the presence of corona discharge in the test specimen, usually related to the magnitude of the applied power-frequency voltage. The presence and the severity of corona are usually determined by indirect means; for example, by the resultant increase in dielectric loss or by the measurement of high-frequency components in the current. (3) Alternating-voltage distribution measurements. The measurement of the potential of the terminal electrodes and of one or more defined points between the high- and low-voltage electrodes of the test specimen, usually with applied voltage of power frequency. (4) Direct low- and high-voltage insulation resistance measurements. The measurement of the current-voltage relationship of the test specimen with the application, for a specified time, of direct voltage in the range of approximately 500 volts to 75 kilovolts or higher.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
