    Megger Test Standard

    Is there a megger test standard? If somone wants to call for an electrician to test wires insulation where they may or may not have been exposed to damage, is there a testing standard that the electrician should go by?
    "Electrician shall test wiring as per IEEE ???" or somthing along those lines.
    Thanks very much.

    Electrician shall employ the services of testing agency that is a Full member of The InterNational Electrical Testing Association (NETA) to perform an insulation-resistance test utilizing a megohmmeter. Testing shall conform to the lastest version of the NETA Maintenance Testing Specifications.

    Re: Megger Test Standard

    How about this?
    IEEE Recommended Practice for Testing Insulation Resistance of Rotating
    Machinery, IEEE Std 43-2000.

    Also for field testing of medium voltage cables:IEEE 400 standard

    And: IEEE P82, the Draft Test Procedure for Impulse Voltage Tests on Insulated Conductors.

    all from the NETA web-site
