Technical Specification Of Testing & Commissioning Equipments
1.
Transformer Oil Testing Set: Oil used in a transformer is an efficient coolant
with a high flash point and high dielectric strength when used as an insulator. The
insulation properties can however change due to oxidation, acids, sludge, gas and
water absorption. These changes need to be monitored periodically using a dielectric
oil testing set (OTS). Following are required:

3 . Primary Injection Set: Circuit Breakers / Current Transformers are one of the
critical “safety valves” of electrical systems, and basic maintenance procedures are
essential to maintain maximum reliability. Primary injection test sets are essentially
required for testing of these Current Transformers / Circuit Breakers. Portable
Primary Current Injection Test Set, 1phase 2 wire with current range from 0-400A
would be suitable. The equipment should have provision for selection of the following
current ranges- 50/100/200/400 Amps. It should suitably design for operation by a
single person and should be relatively light weight. A separate hand held controller
should be connected through an expandable cable to allow the operator to work
close to a protective relay while controlling a test.

most cost effective methods of identifying ageing electrical equipment, and with 60% of
equipment failure being ascribed to insulation breakdown; it is a key area to monitor.
The equipment should be able to test insulation up to 5 KV. It should be capable to read
up to 1.0 TΩ. It should be powered on by alkaline or re-chargeable battery. LCD display
(both digital & analogue display) should be suitable for use in both bright light and poor

The proper operation of the transformer relies almost entirely on the electrical
properties of the windings. To ensure continued operation, transformer are tested to
verify that there electrical properties have not change from design specifications. A
handheld Transformer turns ratio meter is an extremely useful instrument for testing
transformer windings because it can locate several types of problem within a single or
a three phase transformer.
