Uprating of composite insulators of OH lines

The creation of composite insulator started before the 1960s. This new insulator was firstly applied in America and then in France and Germany soon afterwards. It was quite slow for user to accept insulator with silicone rubber material in the beginning as most technical innovation would have some key problems to solve in the history. […]

Introduction of IEC61109 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

Composite insulators consist of an insulating core, bearing the mechanical load protected by a polymeric housing, the load being transmitted to the core by end fittings. Despite these common features, the materials used and the construction details employed by different manufacturers may be quite different. Some tests have been grouped together as “Design tests”, to be performed only […]

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 […]

Sample test method and rules of suspension and tension composite insulator in IEC 61109:2008

Sample test is a major method of insulator acceptance inspection for mass production. It is widely used by inspectors of insulators from manufacturers, power girds and electrical laboratories. Here we have definition, rules, test method and acceptance criteria of composite insulator of suspension type and tension type of international standard IEC 61109:2008 “spension and tension […]

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 […]

Insulators tested in vertical position and horizontal position

As we know,high voltage insulators shall subject to mechanical failing load test, and when we mention “test in vertical position and horizontal position”, this more refer to suspension insulator, tension insulator, post insulator and pin insulator. The suspension and tension insulator are normally tested in horizontal direction, as they are long in shape, with length […]
