Test Methods
• In the field
– Three Phase Equivalent Test
• All three phases of secondary winding are electrically short circuited
Single phase source excites two phases each in seriesany

• Measurement is conducted on three groupsC m p

Per Phase Test
• Single phase source performs individual test on each phase.
• Only corresponding phase on secondary winding is electrically short circuited
• Individual impedance and/or reactance are used to calculate individual %
impedance and/or % reactance which is then compared among phases or

Analysis of Test Results
• Per-Phase Tests
– Per-Phase is the preferred method
• Comparison between phases
• Less physical area included in each measurement

– Initial test
o m pa
• Used to established benchmark
n g C
eeri
• Results acceptable if every value is within 3% average of three readings.
g i n
En
– Subsequent test
b l e
Do
• Acceptable difference is <2% of the established benchmark of the respective phase
Three-Phase Equivalent Test
– Investigative test only
– Analysis
• “Ideal” within 3-4% of nameplate
– 5-7% not necessarily indicative of a problem
• If a benchmark exist should be <2%
