The SF6 insulated standard capacitor can be used together with a C and tan delta measuring bridge as a comparison standard for exact measurements of the capacitance and tan delta of HV equipment such as cables, transformers, bushings, capacitors, etc. The standard capacitors of the series NK or 3370 can also be used as an AC divider for the exact measurements of AC voltages in the industrial frequency range (with add. internal electrode or add. secondary part).
The capacitor is provided with a top electrode which allows partial discharge free interconnections to the other elements of the HV circuit. The capacitor is built as steel pressure vessel, with bushing for voltages up to 30 kV included. Above this voltage the measuring capacitance Cs is formed by the metallic pressure tank and the corresponding internal concentric electrode. The electrodes are insulated from each other with SF6 gas. All capacitors are fitted with a pressure indicator and filling valve. Surge arrestors protect the measuring output from transients.
