A guide to conductor resistance testing of rotating machine stator with MTO106
Measuring the DC conductor resistance of a rotating machine stator can reveal a lot of information about the machine. It is always desirable to find out the existence of any resistance that is higher than the nameplate value which might be caused by poor joints, corrosion or mechanical deformation of the stator winding.

DC test of vacuum integrity in MV switchgear
Since the 1950’s vacuum has been used as insulation media in switchgears. Even though that technology has proven to be very reliable, over time air will leak into the vacuum chamber and degrade the insulation. Also, a good practice is to measure after transport or accidents. The accepted way to test the vacuum integrity has always been through a voltage withstand test. For field tests DC test is preferred due to the weight andsize of the instruments.

Railway Bonding
In the UK, we have two common power systems supplying locomotives. A 25 kV overhead line system and a 750 V third rail system. Both systems use the track as a return path for current flow (see figures 1 and 2).

Advances in Modern Instrument Controls: The Evolution of Insulation Tester Equipment
The original design of electrical test instrumentation was often focused on taking a measurement and little else. A lot of the operation and interpretation was left to the operator. This was fine for people who liked the challenge or had experience. But it could be tough on apprentices, new hires, and those who were simply handed the instrument with no training.Constant improvement in instrumentation has addressed these problems by adding to the capabilities of the instrument. Some are for convenience, some safety and some the advancement in technology over the years that helps standardize testing and provide more accurate results. A prime example is that of insulation testers. Let’s examine some of the key improvements in features and functions, and what they mean to the operator.

Motor testing with MTO106
Winding resistance measurements are conducted for detecting various faults in transformers – including shorted turns, loose connections, broken strands, and malfunctioning tap changer mechanisms. Winding resistance test sets such as the MTO106 are also capable of testing electric rotating machinery – motors and generators. Winding resistance measurements detect problems in a motor that other tests may not find. These problems include partial or fully shorted coils, poor crimps/connections, imbalance between phases (improper turns on a phase), and incorrect coil (phasing) connections.

Dangerous Voltage: Staying Safe Using High Voltage Test Equipment
Electrical test instrumentation often must operate at medium…or even high…voltages. But even “low” voltage can kill you. What are the guidelines that an operator should consider when selecting and working with instrument test voltages?

ETK (Earth Test Kit) for Earth (Ground) Testing
When considering earth (ground) testing, people will often ask about what type of test leads should be used. This includes questions about the type of wire used, the resistance of the leads and the length of the leads, as well as concerns over safety. Fortunately, most of the answers to these questions are addressed by the design of the earth tester itself.

1-500Hz Narrow Band Dielectric Frequency Response
For approximately 25 years, dielectric frequency response (DFR) has been investigated and proven to provide an accurate method of determining both the moisture condition of paper + oil power transformers and bushings. Together with general insulation testing, DFR provides enhanced insulation condition of the transformer under test.

Pumping Station Motor Analysis
This test was performed at a pumping station that was using multiple 600HP motors and a VFD drive. The reported problem was the plant was not receiving adequate power output from the motors during peak times. It was not possible to connect to the inputs of the motors themselves so an MPQ2000 was connected to the output of the VFD and the following measurements were recorded.
