Partial Discharge Test Guide – High Voltage Relay
High voltage relay (HV Relay) is broadly used in automatic circuit control functioning as safety protection or switching circuit. However, has the general user ever thought that the relay used for the switching circuit should be or must be in an isolated state? But then again, is the HV relay really completely isolated?
There are many conditions causing the relay to fail. The common problems are poor withstand voltage of Contact to Coil, increased contact resistance of the reed switch, increased coil resistance, and glass tube dark crack on reed switch. Among them, the poor withstand voltage of Contact to Coil could endanger the user’s safety and seriously affect the low-voltage digital control circuit. It is particularly important to use the relay with safety protection. This document explains the precautions of partial discharge (PD) detection and withstand voltage detection for HV relays during testing and production inspection.
