  • 4. INTRODUCTION MEGGER 3  The megger , or megohmmeter , is a high range ohmmeter.  Used to measure insulation resistance and other high resistance values. This principle forms the basis of insulation testing instrument known as MEGGER.  Also used for ground, continuity, and short circuit testing of electrical power systems.  Designed to cover a wide range(more than 1000megohms) of resistances.
  • 5. 4 Megger Instruments Limited was based at AVO’s Dover site, in Archcliffe Road, Dover, CT17 9EN, Kent, England, which is also the present location of the UK branch of the company. In 1991, due to the popularity of the AVO products the company changed the name to AVO( Multimeter with Amps, Volts and Ohms) Megger Instruments Limited. In 2000 the company became known as AVO International Holdings Limited and in 2002 as AVO International Limited. Finally the whole Megger group changed its name to Megger Group Limited in 2002, as it is known today. Megger Group Limited is a company that manufactures electric test equipment and measuring instruments for electrical power applications The Dover site employs around 230 people. In total (including the sales channels) Megger Group Limited employs around 1500 people worldwide.
  • 6. FEATURES: • Storage of test results. • Recall of test results to instrument display. • Connect to IBM compatible PC for storage of results. • Variable RCD test current for programmable devices. • Designed and manufactured in accordance with International Safety Standards. • Continuity tests with 200 mA short circuit capability. • Prospective Earth Fault and Short Circuit Current. • Supply voltage, polarity and frequency indication. • Complete with Carry Case, Test Leads and Certificate of Test.
  • 7. PRINCIPLE : The instrument works on the principle of ratio-meter/ohmmeter . The required deflection torque is produce by both voltage and current(in the cross-coil) . Due to the interaction between the magnetic field produce by voltage and current , the deflecting torque is produce . The required coil are so positioned that the deflecting torque is proportional to the ratio V/I.
  • 8. I *Torque of coil B proportional to I2 cos(90- Ө ) *Torque of coil A proportional to 1 cos Ө there for, I1 cos Ө = I2 cos (90- Ө ) I1 cos Ө = I2 sin Ө Tan Ө = I1/I2 which is equal to R/R1 *If R1 fixed then the scale calibrated R directly. *The two coil comes in position of equilibrium when two torque equal.
  • 9. CONSTRUCTION OF MEGGER
  • 10.  Permanent magnet DC generator  Measures resistance between zero to infinity
  • 11. • Permanent magnet DC generator: The megger has a small permanent magnet DC generator. The generator is capable of generating either 250V or 500V at full speed. This generator generates a constant voltage and thus avoids the effect of capacitive currents. • Measures resistance between zero to infinity: A megger can measure all resistance lying between zero and infinity essentially it is a high resistance measuring device.
  • 12. ERRORS OF MEGGER • ERRORS READING VALUE DUE TO LOW BATTERY • ERRORS DUE TO CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE • ERRORS DUE TO SENSITIVITY • ERRORS DUE TO CHANGE IN HIGH VOLTAGE SETTING
  • 13. APPLICATIONS OF MEGGER 1.Measurement of high value resistances. 2.Used to measure the electrical resistance of insulators. 3.Testing of electrical components, machinery. 4.Installations for winding
  • 14. CONCLUSION • Megger is a VERY USEFUL INSTRUMENT which is use to determine all the resistances between Zero and Infinity. • Actually zero is the 1st mark and 10k ohm is the 2nd mark so it is impossible to accurately measure small resistances with the help of a Megger • This instrument is very simple to operate, portable and independent of the external supplies.
