IEEE Standard Test Procedure for Thermal Evaluation of Insulation Systems for Ventilated Dry-Type Power and Distribution Transformers

This IEEE Standards product is part of the C57 family on Power Distribution and Regulating Transformers. A test procedure for determining the temperature classification of ventilated dry-type power and distribution transformer insulation systems by test rather than by chemical composition is established. The intent is to provide a uniform method for providing data for selection of the temperature classification of the insulation system, for providing data that may be used as a basis for a loading guide, and for comparative evaluation of different insulation systems. Voltage-withstand endpoint criteria are related to the impulse voltage distribution within the coil or to the initial voltage-withstand of the coil. A relationship between impulse withstand of the insulation and short-term 60-Hz-withstand is identified so that 50/60--Hz testing of model coils is 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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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
