High Voltage Schering Bridge

High Voltage Schering Bridge

The High Voltage  Schering bridge one in every of the most normally used AC bridge. The Schering bridge works on the principle of Equal the load on its arm.

Fig. 1 shows where the specimen has been represented by a parallel combination of Rp and Cp.

Let, C1 – capacitor Which capacitance is to be determined,
r1 – a series of resistance, Indicate the loss of the capacitor C1.
C2 – a standard capacitor
R3 – a non-inductive resistance
C4 – a variable capacitor.
R4 – a variable non-inductive resistance

At balance condition

Z1/Z2 = Z3/Z4
Z1Z4 = Z2Z3

Schering Bridge is also Used To Measure

Applications Are capacity and dielectric, loss measurement of all kinds of capacitances, for instance, cables, insulators, and liquid insulating materials.


Dissipation Factor in Schering Bridge

The dissipation factor of a capacitor is that the ratio of its resistance to its capacitive reactance. The Schering Bridge is essentially a four-arm AC bridge and its measurement idea is predicated on balancing the hundreds on its arms.

  D1 = 2π x 50 x 3180 x C4 = C4 X 10

Since C4 is a variable decade capacitance box, it's setting in μF directly gives the value of the dissipation factor. 

Why bridge is used for the measurement of small capacitance

It is suitable for the measurement of small capacitance equipment. as the bridge uses either high voltage or high-frequency provide. If measurements for such low capacity equipment is carried out at low voltage, the results so obtained are not accurate.

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory The value of the coefficient of consolidation has been assumed to be constant.  The distance d of the drainage path cannot be measured accurately in the field. The thickness of the deposit is generally variable, and an average value has to be estimated.  There is sometimes difficulty 1n locating the drainage face, sometimes thin previous seams that can act as good drainage face are missed in the boring operations. The equation is based on the assumption that the consolidation is one-dimensional. In the field, the consolidation is generally 3-dimensional. The lateral drainage may have a significant effect on the time rate of consolidation. The initial consolidation and secondary consolidation have been neglected. Sometimes these form an important part of the total consolidation. In actual practice, the pressure distribution may be far from linear or uniform. Read More Muller-Breslau principle

Price Guard Wire Method

Price Guard Wire Method Some form of  Price Guard Wire Method  is generally used to eliminate the errors caused by leakage currents over insulation. Fig. 3.14 illustrates the operation of This Method. In fig 3.14(a), a high resistance mounted on a piece of insulating material is measured by the ammeter voltmeter method. The micro-ammeter measures the sum of the current through the resistor (IR) and the current through the leakage path around the resistor. The measured value of resistance computed from the readings indicated on the voltmeter and the microammeter, will not be a true value but will be in error.   Figure 3.14 Application of  guard  circuit for measurement of high resistance In fig, 3.14 (b), the  guard  terminal has been added to the resistance terminal block. The  guard  terminal surrounds the resistance terminal entirely and is connected to the battery side of the micro-ammeter. The leakage current IL now

Negative Booster

Negative booster A negative booster is employed to conform to the regulation that the potential difference between any two points of the rail return shall not exceed 7 V. Two boosters, positive and negative, are used which are mechanically coupled together and driven by a DC motor. The positive booster is connected to the trolley wire (near the generating station) and the negative booster (separately excited) is connected to the track rail.  The 'positive booster' adds voltage to the line while the 'negative booster lowers the potential of the point it is connected to. As we go along the trolley wire away from the generating station/sub-station, the potential drop increases, and the voltage of the trolley wire falls. Since the current returns via the track rail points away from the generating station acquire high potentials. This potential is brought down by the negative boost provided by the negative booster. When the load is sufficiently far aw
