IEEE Trial-Use Recommended Practice for the Evaluation of the Impulse Voltage Capability of Insulation Systems for AC Electric Machinery Employing Form-Wound Stator Coils

This recommended practice outlines a test procedure for the evaluation of the impulse voltage capability of insulation systems of form-wound alternating current rotating electrical machinery. This test procedure forms a base for the accumulation, analysis, and reporting of information concerning impulse voltage withstand strength of ground and turn insulation, both new and aged. The immediate goal is a better understanding of relevant aging mechanisms; the ultimate aim of this document is to aid in estimating life of an insulation system under specified service conditions. It must be emphasized that this test procedure is intended, at this time, for trial use. Future revisions, made after experience with it, should result in more definitive specifications being possible.

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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
