Preventive maintenance of rolling stock
The test and maintenance of electrical components on rolling stock is not an easy job to do. Some maintainers dismount some of the parts and bring them to a central location for revision and maintenance. This is a cumbersome and time consuming exercise. In many cases, the electrical parts are replaced only when they break down and are not subject to periodical testing. This of course holds a risk as some parts, e.g. circuit breakers, are crucial for safety reasons.

Electrical Tester Magazine - October 2020
Check out our latest ET magazine online. Inside you’ll find an introduction to energy storage and 3 articles on partial discharge (PD) topics including: an interview of Dr Detlev Gross and Markus Soeller, two acknowledged experts in this field; excitation voltages for PD testing of cables, and PD testing for transformers. Asset managers will want to read On-line testing of circuit breakers, which illustrates a pragmatic approach to efficiently surveying a circuit breaker fleet using first-trip and VDS testing. If protection schemes are among your areas of interest, you will appreciate the article on end-to-end testing. And those who know how challenging GIS testing can be will benefit from Boel Ekberg’s answers to typical questions she is asked. Transformer enthusiasts will find The high stakes of ignoring the mechanical health integrity of a transformer very informative and an article about dynamic testing of on-load tap changers useful in understanding the several variants of this test. You will also find inside an article about instantaneous torque in motors, which includes three case studies that will convince you of the value of this test. Another great case study is presented in A toolbox approach to fault location in LV power cables and those of you who work in industry won’t want to miss Maximising security of supply at Höchst Industrial Park. Did you know that HVDC transmission was around in 1904!? Open, enjoy and don’t forget to submit your answer to Megger’s third ‘Geek Challenge’ for a chance to win a prize.

Testing self-powered relays with SVERKER900
Self-powered relays will be animportant component for the protection of the smart grid.While they allow reducingthe cost of the protection system, they are definitely a challenge for relay test sets, that are required to provide the voltage and current signals to simulate the power system fault, but also the generatedsignals need to have necessary electric power to supply the protection relay.SVERKER 900 is designed to manage this task and this Technical Guide describes how two self-powered relays can be tested.This document guides through the testing of two self-powered overcurrent relaysfrom SEG GmbH (formerly Woodward), WIC-1 and WIP-1, with the relay test set SVERKER 900, for commissioning/maintenance purposes.The Technical Guide details on the principles adopted in the testing with reference to relevant IEC standards and to the relay manuals. In addition,basic instructions on the correct usage of the testing possibilities offered by SVERKER 900are described
