Tests on cells and medium voltage switchgear

Ensayos de celdas y aparamenta de media tensión

We carry out electrical type tests on cells and medium voltage switchgear (up to 36 kV), in accordance with the IEC 62271 Standard.

Manufacturers of cells and medium voltage switchgear must ensure that the products they sell comply with the electrical safety regulatory requirements, as well as the specifications determined by their customers.

We are able to carry out different types of accredited tests to improve the product and analyse potential failures.

We offer the following services:

  • Type tests in accordance with IEC Standards:
    • Dielectric tests
    • RIV test
    • Measurement of circuit resistance
    • Direct current test
    • Short-time withstand current test and peak withstand current
    • Verification of the protection rating
    • Leakage test
    • Electromagnetic compatibility tests (EMC)
    • Additional tests in control and auxiliary circuits

 Our laboratories have the following capacities:

  • Short-time withstand current test and peak withstand current: 120 kA, 1 s
  • Internal arc test: 25 kA 1 s
  • Opening and closing tests for mainly active load 38.5 kV, 800 A

Aimed at:

  • Manufacturers of Distribution Transformers
  • Electrical Companies
  • Engineering Firms
  • Installers
  • Electrical Maintenance Firms
  • Industrial Plants
  • Promoters of Renewable Energy Farms
