HIGH VOLTAGE 6,6 KV MOTORS MEGGER TEST PROCEDURE PAGE 1 of 3

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT OF FOLLOWING CORRECT PROCEDURES WHILE WORKING WITH HIGH VOLTAGE. AN ERROR WOULD MOST PROBABLY BE FATAL WORKING ON A HIGH VOLTAGE SWITCHBOARD. LIKE ALL THE OTHER WORKS WITH HIGH VOLTAGE, TWO PERSONS ARE ALWAYS REQUIRED, WITH AT LEAST ONE ELECTRICIAN WITH A HIGH VOLTAGE TRAINING COURSE. 1. BEFORE MEGGER TEST OF AN HV MOTOR IS CONTACTED, SWITCH FROM ABB TERMINAL REMOTE CONTROL TO LOCAL [L LED TO BE ON] TO PREVENT REMOTE OPERATION. 2. PULL OUT THE CONTACTOR IN TEST POSITION: TO DO IT SIMULTANEOUSLY TURN COUNTER-CLOCKWISE TO UN-LATCH AND PULL OUT THE TRUCK TO WITHDRAWN POSITION, ON ABB TERMINAL SHOWS [TEST POS] PICTURE 1.

3. ROTATE THE DOOR KNOB HORIZONTALLY TO MAKE THE EARTH SWITCH TO BE ENGAGED WITH THE GROUND, NOT NECESSARY TO OPEN THE DOOR PICTURE 2.

REMEMBER AS A RULE HIGH VOLTAGE EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ALIVE UNTIL TO ESTABLISH VISIBLE EARTH OF THE WORK PLACE. LOCK THE GROUND INTERLOCK KEY ON THE BREAKER. 5. INSERT THE KEY AND UN-LOCK. REMOVE CONNECTION BOX COVER OF THE MOTOR TO BE TESTED. DO A VOLTAGE TEST WITH THE HIGH VOLTAGE TESTER. GO BACK TO MAIN SWITCHBOARD AND DO THE ABOVE STEPS REVERSELY. MOTOR WILL BE UN-GROUNDED AND PHASE IS READY FOR MEGGER TESTING PICTURE 5. REMOVE THE KEY FROM THE SLOT AND KEEP IT INSIDE YOUR POCKET PICTURE 3. . 6.PAGE 2 of 3 4. CONNECT MEGGER TESTER TERMINALS ONE ON THE SHIP’S METALLIC STRUCTURE AND THE OTHER TO ONE PHASE L1 PICTURE 4. TURN THE DOOR KNOB TO ORIGINAL POSITION [VERTICALLY] AND FINALLY PUSH BACK THE TRUCK IN NORMAL POSITION. REMEMBER TO DO A FUNCTION TEST OF THE TESTER BOTH TIMES BEFORE AND AFTER THE ACTUAL TEST.

PAGE 3 of 3 7. BY PASS AND STAR TO BE GROUNDED AND UN-GROUNDED BEFORE INSULATION READING IS TAKEN. REMEMBER AS A RULE AFTER DISCONNECTION OF THE EARTH APPARATUS THE CONNECTIONS SHOULD BE NOW CONSIDERED “ALIVE” SINCE THEY ARE NO LONGER GROUNDED. SPRAY PUMP MOTOR THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL DOCUMENT THEREFORE EVALUATE ACCORDING TO YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. BOW THRUSTER MOTOR 2. REPEAT STEPS FROM [3 – 8] TO MEGGER TEST THE SECOND PHASE L2 AND SO ON.. NO 1 BALLAST PUMP MOTOR 2. KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE FROM THOSE TERMINALS AS A PRECAUTION. NO 2 BALLAST PUMP MOTOR 3. NO 2 HD CARGO COMPRESSOR MOTOR THE FOLLOWING TWO MOTORS HAVE THREE BREAKERS AND MEGGER TEST PROCEDURE SHOULD BE DONE IN THE SAME WAY AS ABOVE. NO 3 BALLAST PUMP MOTOR 4. 1. 8. . TAKE MEGGER TEST READING FROM THE CONNECTED PHASE L1 ONLY PICTURE 6. ………………………NEVER GET CLOSE TO HIGH VOLTAGE……………………… . NO 1 HD CARGO COMPRESSOR MOTOR 5. 1. IF IT IS NECESSARY TO TAKE MORE PRECAUTIONS THEN DO IT……………………………………………………………. INSTEAD OF ONE ALL THREE BREAKERS MAIN. IMPORTANT REMARKS: THE FOLLOWING LISTED MOTORS MEGGER TEST PROCEDURE IS SAME AND SHOULD BE CARRY ON STEP BY STEP AS DESCRIBED ABOVE STEPS [1-8].
