Insulation resistance is determined by applying a dc
voltage, typically 500 or 1000 Volts, across insulation,
measuring the current flow after the voltage has been
applied for a specific length of time and then determining
the ratio of voltage to current. Because the current flow
ALL
is low, the value of insulation resistance will be great in
BE
terms of ohms. Accordingly, megohms are used as a
practical unit.
Factors affecting insulation resistance are as
follows:
IF
1. Moisture
2. Surface cleanliness of the insulation
3. Temperature
4. Length of time of applying the dc test voltage
5. Magnitude of the applied dc test voltage
