Our ACS/PSZ AC Dielectric Test Systems are specifically designed for test applications which require a stable output voltage, even if the load may change during testing. For example for heavy corona, wet tests or pollution tests to name a few. These systems are also especially useful for when the load is inductive, such as inductive voltage transformers.Depending on our customer's specific needs, it's possible to stack several transformers - allowing us to reach very high voltages while also taking up very little valuable floor space.
Haefely offers several different types of control units for our AC dielectric test. These controls are designed for a number of test applications.AC dielectric testing is a proven technique for verifying insulation integrity in electrical apparatus.

The SGSA impulse generator is the smallest of its range. They are recommended for medium voltage, small power transformer manufacturers and other general purpose impulse testing switchgears, bushing, etc.SGSA impulse test systems can be used to generate impulse voltages simulating lightning strikes and switching surges. Applications covered include testing according to IEC, ANSI/IEEE as well as other international standards. The basic system can be upgraded in various ways for special tests and for greater ease of operation. A number of additional circuits and components allow users to further optimize tests on different kinds of high voltage test objects.
The sophisticated design of the SGVA series considers all requirements of impulse voltage tests imposed by industry and research. This series offers reliable and accurate triggering- on account of its patented parallel spark gap leading to low impulse circuit inductance. Resistors are distributed within the generator, stored in easily-accessible compartments, accessible trough platforms and internal ladders for rapid stage access and interchangeability. An integrated base frame carries both the generator and the charging rectifier.
Haefely line of chopping or sphere gaps can be used for either AC or DC voltage calibration (according to IEC 60052) or as a load capacitor and to provide a chopped lightning impulse. Chopping gaps are an important part of a complete impulse test system when a chopped impulse is required. Haefely offers two lines of chopping gaps, the MAFS series which is an automated multiple chopping gap and the KFS series which is a horizontal and vertical sphere gap. Integrated with Haefely control units GC 223 and GC 257 the sphere distances can be automatically adjusted on the vertical versions. This saves time in setup and also helps to provide a reproducible chopping time.
Control systems for impulse generators are a crucial part of a complete impulse test system. From customized test procedures to measuring values and built in alarms the Haefely impulse control units GC 223 and GC 257 can provide a reliable and advanced solution.Designed to be used in high voltage environments the Haefely controls units can be connected with an impulse measuring device (HIAS, DIAS or DMI) to form a full impulse control and measurement system. The controllers can also be fully remote controlled via an RS 232 interface and they also support automated test sequences if this option is required.
When combined with our advanced impulse test systems, they are used to test HV apparatus such as Power Transformers, Instrument Transformers, Switchgear, Breaker, HV Cable etc. Tests are conducted with lightning full or chopped waves, and / or switching impulses. Haefely impulse generators integrate the highest safety systems which ensure a safe operation for personnel and test object.
