Test single-phase and three-phase electrical appliances 3 Credits 3

Purpose

This unit standard is for use in the training of electrical service technicians. It covers the regulatory safety testing and live testing for voltage and current of single-phase and three-phase appliances. People credited with this unit standard are able to: demonstrate knowledge of regulatory requirements for safety testing of electrical appliances; demonstrate knowledge of procedures for safety testing of electrical appliances; perform safety testing of single-phase and three-phase appliances; and perform supply voltage and current testing of single-phase and three-phase appliances.

Achieved

This unit standard has been developed for learning and assessment off-job. Competency under this unit standard does not entitle the candidate to legally perform prescribed electrical work without adequate supervision until the candidate has been registered and licensed under the Electricity Act 1992. References Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010; Electricity Act 1992; Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, and associated regulations; New Zealand Electrical Codes of Practice (Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, ISSN 0114-0663); and their subsequent amendments and replacements. Definition Industry practice those practices, which competent practitioners within the industry recognise as current industry best practice.

17811 version 5 Page 2 of 4

Demonstrate knowledge of regulatory requirements for safety testing of electrical appliances. Evidence requirements 1.1 1.2 1.3 The circumstances under which appliances must be tested are identified according to current regulations and standards. The tests to be carried out are stated according to current regulations and standards. The term electrically safe is explained in accordance with current regulations and standards.

Outcome 2 Demonstrate knowledge of procedures for safety testing of electrical appliances. Evidence requirements 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 2.5 2.6 2.7 2.8 2.9 Items to be inspected visually are identified in accordance with current regulations and standards. Protective earthing conductor (PEC) test is described and the limits stated in accordance with current regulations and standards. Insulation resistance tests are described and the limits stated in accordance with current regulations and standards. Polarity tests are described for single-phase and three-phase appliances in accordance with industry practice. Phase rotation test is described according to industry practice. The test instruments to be used are stated for each type of test. The reason why the insulation resistance test voltage for insulation tests must be at twice the normal voltage is stated. The purpose for carrying out an installation is identified. Action to be taken following testing is stated for compliant and for non-compliant appliances, in accordance with current regulations and standards.

Outcome 3 Perform safety testing of single-phase and three-phase appliances. Range three single-phase appliances, one three-phase appliance.

Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR) reference 0003 This CMR can be accessed at http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/framework/search/index.do. Please note Providers must be granted consent to assess against standards (accredited) by NZQA, before they can report credits from assessment against unit standards or deliver courses of study leading to that assessment. Industry Training Organisations must be granted consent to assess against standards by NZQA before they can register credits from assessment against unit standards. Providers and Industry Training Organisations, which have been granted consent and which are assessing against unit standards must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards. Requirements for consent to assess and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this standard are outlined in the Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR). The CMR also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
