Difference Between AC Hipot Test and DC Hipot Test

High Point represents high potential and is a term used for a specific class of test equipment for electrical insulation. Hipot testers are the reverse of the continuity tester- it conducts the discontinuity test checking no current flow condition between two points. Hipot tests are conducted to find crushed, or leakage in the insulation, and...

Difference between Single-Phase and Three-Phase Transformer?

The transformer is an electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits through inductively coupled conductors in the transformer’s coils. It can be a single-phase transformer or a three-phase transformer. There are many differences between auto variable transformer manufacturers that you need to know about.  Here is some basic information about single-phase and three-phase...

Instructions for use and safety measures for hipot testing

Hipot testing has long been a common practice verifying that electronic equipment complies with electrical safety standards. Early commercial hipot testers essentially consisted of a variac-driven step-up transformer to ramp up the test voltage. Then dwell at the designated voltage for the set amount of time while keeping an eye out for excessive leakage current or device...

What are the Effects of High Voltage Transmission Lines on Humans and Plants?

As the world’s population grows, towns are getting bigger, and many new buildings are going up near high voltage power lines. Because people use more power, they must expend vast energy over long distances. Large configurations of transmission lines with high levels of voltage and current create strong electric and magnetic fields that affect people and things...

Pre-Testing Arrangements for Hipot Testing

The electric grid network is often referred to as critical infrastructure. For electric utilities, any interruption that causes a lot of downtimes is a significant source of revenue loss. As a result, policymakers expect network operators to deliver electricity to retail customers around the clock.  As a result, hi-pot testing equipment must meet the highest standards of...
