AC vs. DC over-potential testing of AC equipment - IEEE Conference Publication

Abstract:

The existing equipment and testing standards for electrical power switchgear clearly define the requirement of ac over-voltage withstand testing. However, some of the field testing standards have deemed dc over-voltage as sufficient to test the dielectric strength of the insulation system and do not require an ac over-potential test. The question is whether or not dc is sufficient to test electrical distribution equipment, such as switchgear, switchboards and panel in which mounting insulators and air may be the only insulation. This paper will document a series of comparison tests in which both dc and ac voltages were used to test the dielectric strength of an air gap between conductors. It will show that a very small air gap can be significant impedance to both ac and dc. Performing both tests provides the best assurance that the insulation system will be adequate.

I. Overview There are three common names for testing electrical equipment at a voltage higher than the voltage rating on the name plate and there is no difference between them except the name: over- potential, dielectric withstand and high-potential testing. An ac over-potential test is an ac dielectric
