Organization: IEEE
Publication Date: 5 February 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 19
scope:

This standard applies to high-potential testing of complete excitation systems and their components for synchronous machines. The components of the excitation system are described in IEEE Std 421.1™ [B2].1 Auxiliary devices connected to either the input or output side of the rectifier bridge are exposed to similar excitation system stresses and are included in the requirements of this standard. Examples of such devices include temperature indicators, transducers, meters, field circuit breaker, discharge resistor, crowbar, etc. This standard does not cover the synchronous machine field winding.

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to provide requirements and specific directions for the high-potential testing of complete excitation systems and their components using the most recent information manufacturers have made available.
