The compensating reactor allows the insulation quality of generators, motors, cables and other systems with large capacitances to be tested. The portable device is used in connection with the CPC 100 + CP TD1 for dissipation factor (tan delta) and power factor measurements.
For dissipation factor (tan δ) / power factor testing and tip-up testing several CP CR500 units can be connected in parallel. Capacitances of up to 1µF (4 A) can be compensated with 12 kV test voltage and at mains frequency* (50 Hz / 60 Hz). The system can also be used as a high-voltage source to provide compensation of up to 2 µF, for example when performing partial discharge measurements. The frequency can also be varied (15 Hz ... 400 Hz) to facilitate optimum compensation during long-time tests.
