Test Method

Short Circuit

In principle the short circuit test is an ohmic resistance measurement. This test is usually performed automatically before an electric functional test in order to find out if there is a short circuit between the conductors. With this it should be avoided that voltage is switched to a test object which already has a major short circuit. Thus a major damage of the test object can be avoided.

This test can be performed at 1- as well as at 3-phase test objects.
