INSTRUCTIONS In a two-winding transformer, there are six measurements of capacitance: (1) CHL (2) CHL+HG (3) CHG (4) C LH+LG (5) C LG (6) C HG +LG (7) Capacitance of the HV bushings of three phases. All HV line terminals are connected together labeled (H) and all LV terminals are connected together labeled (L) and a connection is made to a ground terminal, usually a connection to

transformer tank, which is labeled (G). Leads from the measuring instrument or bridge are connected to one or both terminals and ground. Either grounded specimen measurements or grounded measurements are possible so that all the capacitance and dissipation factor values can be determined. 11.0 CALCULATIONS DISSIPATION CORRECTION FACTOR Tan Delta at 20 C = Tan Delta at Temp T C / Factor K 12.0 TOLERANCES NIL
