If I have a cable that is 375m long, and wish to do a hi-pot test, I would imagine a DC test is more suitable because AC test would induce abnormal capacitive current across the insulation, and result in a larger leakage current. Does everyine agree with this logic? Also, is there a standard what the DC hi-pot etst voltage should be? Is it alwasy SQRT(2) * AC Hipot etst voltage?
