power factor testing of electrical distribution equipment helps to identify potential problems early and to monitor the progression of those problems. Power Factor testing is an AC insulation test that would be applicable on many types of electrical insulation including the insulating component of cables, motors, generators, transformers, circuit breakers and other power system apparatus. This type of measurement accommodates planning of maintenance, repairs and replacement of power system components without compromising the electrical system.Poor insulation can cause serious problems in electrical power distribution. Testing and maintenance programs that include
Power Factor Testing
Leakage Reactance testing is highly sensitive to transformer winding deformation. When these type changes occur, electrical losses increase and make the transformer less efficient. Additionally, these type indications, as reflected in the impedance of a transformer, can be used as a diagnostic tool to help maintain the health of the transformer and ensure its continued service.
