Individual temperature correction (ITC) for insulation resistance measurements

Individual temperature correction (ITC) for insulation resistance measurements

Insucon 2017 Conference, Birmingham

The value of insulation resistance (IR) is strongly affected by the temperature of the material. However, in most cases IR measurements are done at the operating temperature of the given device. For this reason temperature correction is required to ensure that meaningful conclusions can be drawn from the measured values of IR
