The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard for insulation resistance testing of motor and generator windings that was published in 2002 has been revised. The 2013 edition was published in March 2014.
The first change in the new document is a slight change in the title. It has changed from “IEEE Recommended Practice for Testing Insulation Resistance of Rotating Machinery” to “Recommended Practice for Testing Insulation Resistance of Electric Machinery.” The reason for the change was to use the more prevalent IEEE term for motors and generators. Significant changes to clauses of the standard that affect service center repairs and testing are described in this article.
