    Load Testing

    Found this on one manufacturers documentation:

    "Conduct load test two years[emphasis added] after installation and then every five years. When the
    systemís capacity falls below 90% load test annually."

    "PARTIAL DISCHARGE is a fault of low level energy which usually occurs in gas-filled voids surrounded by oil impregnated material.
    The main cause of decomposition in partial discharges is ionic bombardment of the oil molecules.

    The major gas produced is Hydrogen. The minor gas produced is Methane."

    I couldn't find any information on this. Could the question have been at what IR value (Megohms) does P.I. become ambiguous? (5,000MOhms I think)
    I agree with your assesment.

    If the IR value (at 40 įC) is greater than 5000 MΩ, the PI may be ambiguous and can be disregarded. http://electrominst.com/test-technol...on-resistance/

    Good chart for reference, thank you for posting.

    Looking at different references, it would appear that both Acetylene or Hydrogen are indicators of partial discharge.

    Original Question: A primary injection is to be performed on a transformer 138kV/25kV, 2500kva, 8%Z using a 480V generator connected to the high side with the low side grounded. The expected current in the high side is?


    7. You did not specify the xfmr connection but assuming it is Delta/Wye my calculation is 3007.12 A primary
    Didn't read all the answers but this one jumped out and just slapped me as very high. I think that if no three phase connection is given one assumes a single phase transformer. If I tell you I am standing here with a 480V to 120V transformer in my hand you would assume one transformer with a turns ratio of 4 to 1 and a primary voltage of 480 volts.

    Ok - so the full load current at 138,000V and 2,500,000 VA is 18.116 A. At 8%Z with a shorted secondary you would multiply that by 12.5 so at rated voltage you have 226.45 amps Isc. But you are only applying 480V so you would get, proportionately, 0.787 AMPS. Generally, if I specify that a transformer is (for example) 10%Z that means that with the secondary shorted it will take 10% of the rated primary voltage to get full load current. www.cttestset.com

    The chapter you are citing refers to emergency systems.

    I would think the appropriate chapter is:
    "230.95 Ground-Fault Protection of Equipment. Ground-fault protection of equipment shall be provided for solidly grounded wye electric services of more than 150 volts to ground but not exceeding 1000 volts phase-to-phase for each service disconnect rated 1000 amperes or more. The grounded conductor for the solidly grounded wye system shall be connected directly to ground through a grounding electrode system, as specified in 250.50, without inserting any resistor or impedance device. The rating of the service disconnect shall be considered to be the rating of the largest fuse that can be installed or the highest continuous current trip setting for which the actual over current device installed in a circuit breaker is rated or can be adjusted."

    Thanks
    From a subsequent post it looks like this question may have referred to emergency systems, which should not trip.

    I think I got confused because I had both questions on my tests. Last time I went and passed the test I had the one with emergency systems. You need to read the question properly and not mistake the two of them during your test. On emergency is not required except for audio and visual.
