Why Insulation Resistance is Inversely Proportional to Length?

It seems amazing that Insulation Resistance (IR) of a Cable is inversely proportional to the length of Cable. As per our general perception, the resistance is directly proportional to length of conductor but mind here that it is not the resistance of conductor rather it is the resistance of the Insulation provided around the conductor. … Read more

Insulation Resistance Test and Polarization Index

Megger is an electrical device which is used to measure the Insulation Resistance by performing Insulation Resistance Test (IR Test). Basically Megger injects High DC Voltage across the Insulator and ground due to which leakage current flows through the Insulator to the ground. By measuring this Leakage Current, Megger calculates the Insulation Resistance. Suppose the … Read more
