    • Electrical Testing & Inspection Services AC & DC Hi Potential Test AC Impedance Tests Digital ELCID Meggar Boroscopic Inspections Pole Balance Drop Calculation of Polarity Indexes DC Leakage Wedge Surveys and Mapping Resistance Testing of RTDs Visual Inspections Capacitance Mapping Retaining Ring Inspections
    • H.I.T. Skids / Flush & Bake SkidsFor Liquid Cooled Generators Five Skids Tools to Address TIL 1098 Fast Dry Out of Cooling System for Elec. Testing Prep For Vacuum & Pressure Decay TestsFlush & Bake Skids: Flush Stator Cooling System & Bars After Rewind Cures Epoxies & Conforming Materials Reduces Bake Cycle Significantly
    • High Voltage Bushing RefurbishmentNew or Refurbished High VoltageBushings : Re-manufacture & rebuild nearly all models Refurbishment cost much less than new bushings Provides an opportunity to upgrade bushing components Faster turn-around than waiting for new bushings We maintain a finished inventory of common bushings Porcelain or composite insulators Complete electrical testing Turnkey installation

    • Typical Electrical Field Test on a Generator Rotor  Megohm Test (megger)  Winding Resistance Test  AC Impedance Test  Pole Balance Test  Visual Inspections
    • Field Testing Megohm Test (megger) Checks Ground Wall Insulation Slot Liners Creepage Blocks and Slot Bottom Covers Retaining Ring Insulation Terminal Stud Insulation Bore Copper Tube Collector Ring Sleeves
    • Field Winding Resistance TestMeasurement is converted to standard temperature specific to the manufacturer
    • Field Winding Resistance TestTypical Issues to Identify Lower than Normal Resistance MeansTurn to Turn Shorting is Present Higher than Normal Resistance CouldMean a Few Different Things:  Cracked Conductor  Elongated Conductors
    • Field TestingAC Impedance Test Checks for Turn to Turn Shorting Rotor Acts as an Inductor whenPassing AC Current Through the Windings The Current Flow is “Choked” orRestricted by the Number of Turns Around the IronCore (Rotor Body)
    • AC Impedance Test SetVoltage is raised in 10V steps and current is measured at each step. Also, Impedance (Ohms) is calculated
    • Field Testing Pole Balance Test Only Performed if Access is Available to the Pole to Pole Connector (or Very Close By)  Usually Performed with AC  Voltage Applied as High as Practical-- Usually 100V  Voltage is Measured from Inboard Collector
    • Field During Rewind
    • Bore Copper Assembly
    • Stator Testing
    • Stator (Armature) Testing Winding Resistance Test Megohm Test (megger) DC Leakage Test DC Hipot RTD Resistance Test RTD Megger Test
    • Stator Field Testing Winding Resistance Test oMeasured with a Digital Low Resistance Ohm Meter (DLRO) • Also Known as a “Bridge”, “Ductor”, “Micro Ohm Meter” Regardless of Name, All are a 4 Wire Kelvin Bridge Device
    • Stator Field Testing Megohm Test (megger) Checks Ground Wall Insulation  Taped Insulation on Bars/Coils  Porcelain or Epoxy Insulation on Terminal and Stand-off Bushings  Hoses on Water or Oil Cooled Machines
    • Stator Field Testing Megohm Test (megger)  Usually Performed at 2500 V or 5000 V for 10 Minutes  All Megger Tests are DC  Achieve a Final Megohm Reading and Polarization Index (PI)  PI = R10 / R1
    • Stator Field Testing Megohm Test (megger)  Reduced Creepage Paths (Distance to Ground) Can Lead to Low Megohm Readings  Dirty or Contaminated Bushings/Terminals  Insulation Migration (Big Problem in Certain Asphalt-Mica Machines)
    • Stator Field TestingAEMC ElectronicMegohm Meter
    • Stator Field Testing DC Leakage Test  A High Voltage Test of the Stator Windings Used to Gain Quantitative and Historical Data as to the Condition of the Insulation  DC Tests in General are Sensitive Indicators of the Presence of Cracks, Fissures, Reduced Creepage Paths, Moisture and Dirt
    • Stator Field Testing DC Leakage Test  Consists of a Series of Insulation Resistance Measurements Taken at Increasing Voltage Steps on a Scheduled Time Basis  A 10 Minute Preliminary Di-electric Absorption Test Determines the Absorption Ratio of the Insulation (N number)
    • Stator Field TestingDC LeakageTest Underway
    • Stator Field Testing DC Leakage Test  Sphere-Gap Voltmeter Is Used to Verify Voltmeter and for Overvoltage Protection  Sphere-Gap Voltmeter (Spheres) Are Set to Arc Over at 10 to 15% Higher Than Max Test Voltage  Set High Enough So That It Does Not Add Significant Leakage Current
    • Stator Field Testing80 KV DC Hipot, IsolationTransformer and Sphere-GapVoltmeter
    • Stator Field Testing DC High Potential Test (Hipot)  Final Suitability for Service Test  Substitute for AC Test, Which Requires a Large and Expensive Piece of Equipment  May or May Not Be Required by Insurance Company
    • Stator Field Testing DC High Potential Test (Hipot)  Often Times Is Performed as the Last Step of a DC Leakage Test  Leakage Value Is Not Important Since Extraneous Leakage Currents Can Be Very High  Surface Tracking  Ionization of Air Near Terminals
    • Stator Field Testing RTD Testing Resistance Test  Resistance Is Measured Between Each Leg (wire)  Excel Spread Sheets Calculates Temperature  Checked to Insure That All RTDs are Functional
    • Stator Field Testing RTD Testing Megger Test (Slot RTDs Only)  Resistance to Ground Is Measured at 500 Volts  Checked to Insure That RTDs are Not Capable of Creating Circulating Currents Which Could Result In Localized Heating and Back Feeds into the Meters
