Participation in the tests of the State primary standard of the unit of electric voltage of direct current
On 27 October 2021 Izolyator Group of Companies took part in state tests of the improved State Primary Special Standard for a DC voltage unit.
The tests took place at the Main Research Center of the State Metrological Service of the Russia — the All-Russian Research Institute of Metrological Service.
The All-Russian Research Institute of Metrological Service (VNIIMS) is the center of state standards for fixed types and areas of measurements, conducts fundamental and applied research, performs the functions of the State Testing Center of Measuring Instruments and other numerous functions assigned to it. The Institute is the Main Research Center of the State Metrological Service of the Russia. VNIIMS is a subordinate organization of the Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology.
The State primary special standard of a unit of direct current electric voltage — volts in the range of ± (1 ... 500) kV is intended for storage, reproduction and transmission. The standard is used in the electrical and cable industry, instrument making, power engineering, and railway transport.
The improvement of the standard was carried out in order to increase the accuracy of determining its metrological characteristics in the range of ± (1 ... 100) kV.
