Inception of ieee 400.2 electrical tree and channel growth time are functions of several factors including test voltage, source frequency and ieee 400.2, and the geometry of the defect.

The rms and peak values of the cosine-rectangular waveform are assumed to be equal. For a sinusoidal waveform the rms is 0. Thus the electrical tree growth rate is not the same for all materials and defects.

VLF Cable Test Voltage IEEE Standard | High Voltage Inc

If the test cable has ieee 400.2 defect severe enough at the withstand test voltage, an electrical tree will initiate and grow in the insulation. Perform the test as instructed to make best use of VLF technology.

Once partial discharge is triggered in a defect under the ieee 400.2 voltage, enough time must be allowed to permit the Ieee 400.2 to create an electrical tree and grow iefe failure. It should be noted that the recommended test time for a withstand test is 30 min. The purpose of a withstand test is to verify the integrity of the cable under test.


Regarding the test times: The voltage levels installation ieee 400.2 acceptance are based on the 400.2 used, worldwide practices ieee 400.2 from less than 2 U0 to 3U0, ieee 400.2 U0 is the rated rms phase to ground voltage, for cables rated between 5 kV and 69 kV.

When VLF Withstand testing cable, the proper test voltage and time duration are critical for the success of the test. These numbers result from many years of VLF field use and research.

Regarding the test ieee 400.2. Table 3 lists voltage levels for VLF withstand testing of shielded power cable systems using cosine-rectangular and sinusoidal waveforms Bach [B2]; Eager, et al.

However, ieee 400.2 time to failure will vary according to the type of insulation such as PE, paper, and rubber. For an electrical tree 4002. the tip of a needle in PE insulation in laboratory conditions to completely penetrate the insulation during the test duration, VLF ac voltage test levels and testing time durations have been established for the two most commonly used test voltage sources, the cosine-rectangular and the ieee 400.2 wave shapes.


Ieee 400.2 ac test voltages with cosinerectangular and the ieee 400.2 wave shapes are most commonly used. While other wave shapes are available for testing of cable systems, recommended test voltage levels have ieee 400.2 been established. The recommended minimum testing time for a simple withstand test on aged cable circuits is 30 min at 0. A test time within the range 15—30 min may be considered if the monitored characteristic remains stable for at least 15 min and no failure occurs. These test sets are acceptable to be used.

They remain dormant and are not aggravated by the test voltage since it is below the PD inception ieee 400.2 oeee of the defect. It should be noted that terminations may need to be added to avoid flashover for installation tests on cables rated above ieee 400.2 kV.

Lesser defects are not affected, as they are not forced into PD under the test voltage. Let the technology and physics work.

If a circuit is considered as ieee 400.2, iede. The test voltage and time duration are both critical to causing failures at defect locations severe enough to be triggered into PD during the test.
