Content of IEC 61284:1997 Overhead lines – Requirements and tests for fittings

International standard IEC 61284:1997 “Overhead lines – Requirements and tests for fittings” has defined requirements and test methods of electrical fittings (line hardware) for overhead lines. The complete IEC standard includes English and French language version, it’s too long and a little difficult for quick explore. Here we quote the content of IEC 61284 for […]

Routine tests of composite insulator with voltage greater than 1000V in IEC 61109 2008

Last time we talked about sample test of silicone composite insulator for AC system above 1KV, the IEC 61109:2008 has defined it clearly. Today let’s the coming section”routine test” of polymeric insulator in this IEC 61109: 13 Routine tests 13.1 Mechanical routine test Every insulator shall withstand, at ambient temperature, a tensile load at RTL […]

Damage limit proof test and test of the tightness of the interface between end fittings and insulator housing in IEC61109:2008

Damage limit proof test and test of the tightness of the interface between end fittings and insulator housing,these two tests are two of the most important test in inspection process of composite insulator. Here is how international standard IEC 61109:2008 “Suspension and tension insulators for AC system with a nominal voltage greater than 1000V” defines these 2 […]

Thermal-mechanical pre-test of composite insulator in IEC 61109:2008

Thermal-mechanical test is one of the most significant test for composite insulators. Here we have partial section of International Standard IEC 61109 2008: Insulators for Insulators for overhead lines – Composite suspension and tension insulators for a.c. systems with a nominal voltage greater than 1 000 V – Definitions, test methods and acceptance criteria. IEC […]

End fitting of railway insulator of Indian market

End fitting of railway insulator of Indian market The end fittings of silicone composite insulator for 25KV railway overhead traction have specific requirements. The end fittings shall be made of spheroidal graphite cast iron to grade: 400/15 of IS:1865-1991 or forged steel fittings to BS-970(Part-II). Approval of the type test of the insulator implies employment […]
