What is a Power Factor/ Dissipation Factor/Tangent Delta Test?


The underlying principle of this test is to measure the fundamental AC electrical characteristics of insulation.

Definition

Insulation
IEEE Defines Insulation as:Material or a combination of suitable non-conducting material that provides electrical isolation of two parts at different voltages.

Clarification

Insulation vs. Dielectric

Insulation relates to a mediums ability to prevent the flow of current, I.e. poor conduc Dielectric implies that the medium or material has specific measurable properties such as: Dielectric Strength, Dielectric Constant, Dielectric Loss and Power Factor.

Dielectric Constant
In 1836, Michael Faraday (the father of the Capacitance -- Just look at his name) discovered that when the plates between a capacitor were filled with another insulating material, the capacitance would change. This factor is the dielectric constant e By definition the dielectric constant of a Vacuum is 1.0. All other dielectric constants are referenced to this standard. Oil e=2.2 Vacuum

Cvacuum=10 pF

Coil = e x Vacuum = 22 pF

Dielectric Loss
Dielectric Loss is the time rate at which electric energy is transformed into heat in a dielectric when it is subjected to an electric field. The heat generated is given in terms of Watts.

iR Watts

Watts = E IR

Watts = Contamination + Deterioration Contamination = Water + Carbon + Dirt Deterioration = Carbon + Corona

Voltage sensitive characteristics When we closely examine insulation, very small gaps or voids could exist. These voids develop an electrostatic potential on their surfaces. These small gaps become ionized: Partial Discharge/Corona.

Power Factor vs. Test Potential


As test voltage is increased, the power factor will increase depending on the void density.

Traditional suppression method


Interference Suppression - Line Sync Reversal (Traditional)
Reports the average of the normal and 180 degree reversed reading at 60 Hz. It is only effective when the specimen current is greater than the interference current. The test frequency is obtained from the 120/240-volt line frequency. Some difficulties may be encountered when using an unstable frequency source with this type of test.

Updated approach to interference cancellation Interference Suppression - Line Frequency Modulation


Reports the computed result at line frequency of the two measurements at +-5% of the line frequency, e.g. 57 and 63 Hz. This method minimizes the effects of electrostatic interference and yields superior results in high levels of electrostatic interference. The test frequency is obtained from an internal oscillator. This type of test creates a synthesized test voltage that is isolated from the input and offers better performance using a generator or DC to AC inverter
