IEC 60897:1987


Language: EN Methods for the determination of the lightning breakdown voltage of insulating liquids

Language: FR Méthodes de détermination de la tension de claquage au choc de foudre des liquides isolants


Language: EN Describes two test methods, A and B, for assessing the electric strength of insulating liquids in a divergent field when subjected to standard lightning impulses. Method A is based on a step procedure intended to provide an estimate of impulse breakdown voltage under specific conditions. Method B is a statistical test designed to check a hypothesis about the impulse breakdown probability of an insulating liquid at a given voltage level.
