Review of Australian Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Australian Standards are subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editi ons as necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest edit ion, and any amendments thereto. Full detail s of all Australi an Standards and related publications wil l be found in the Standards Australia Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine ‘The Australian Standard’, which subscribing members receive, and which gives detail s of new publi cati ons, new edit ions and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Suggesti ons for improvements to Australian Standards, addressed to the head offi ce of Standards Australia, are welcomed. Noti fi cati on of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australi an Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 95212.

PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand Committee EL/7 on Power Switchgear. It is identical with and has been reproduced from IEC 60-1:1989, High-voltage test techniques , Part 1: General definitions and test requirements , and the Corrigendum to supersede AS 1931.1—1976, High voltage testing techniques, Part 1: General definitions, test requirements, test procedures and measuring devices. This Standard is the result of a consensus among representatives on the Joint Committee to produce it as an Australian Standard. This Standard is Part 1 of AS 1931, High-voltage test techniques, which is published in Parts as follows: Part 1: General definitions and test requirements Part 2: Measuring systems The objective of this Standard, in addition to that stated in Clause 2, is to bring it into line with IEC 60-1. The correction required by the Corrigendum is marked with a marginal bar. As this Standard is reproduced from an international Standard, the following applies: (a) Its number is shown only on the cover and title page, while the international Standard number appears only on the cover. (b) In the source text, ‘this International Standard’ should read ‘this Australian Standard’. (c) A full point substitutes for a comma when referring to a decimal marker. References to international Standards should be replaced by equivalent Australian Standards, as follows: References to International Standard IEC 34 Rotating electrical machines 34-4 Part 4: Methods for determining synchronous machine quantities from tests 52 Recommendations for voltage measurement by means of spheregaps (one sphere earthed) High-voltage test techniques 60 Part 3: Measuring devices 60-3 Part 4: Application guide for 60-4 measuring devices 270 Partial discharge measurements 507 Artificial pollution tests on highvoltage insulators to be used on a.c. systems Australian Standards AS —

Object

The object of this standard is: — — — — — to define terms of both general and specific applicability; to present general requirements regarding test objects and test procedures; to describe methods for generation and measurement of test voltages and currents; to describe test procedures; to describe methods for the evaluation of test results and to indicate criteria for acceptance or refusal.

Definitions and requirements concerning approved measuring devices and checking methods are given in IEC Publication 60-3: High Voltage Test Techniques—Measuring Devices. Alternative test procedures may be required to obtain reproducible and significant results. The choice of a suitable test procedure should be made by the relevant Technical Committee.
