    I do not think there is a free (legal) PDF version. Those are copyrighted documents, and they are for sale through a number of outlets. Just buy them and that will show you the test procedure(s).

    thanks !
    thats why i had some trouble of finding free PDF version of IEC Standard.

    anyway, may i ask one more thing.

    what is the difference between "INSULATION TEST OR MEGGER TESTING" From "CABLE SHEAT INTEGRITY TEST W/ ABSORPTION INDEX" ? for Medium Voltage cable of 15KV?.. coz im quite having some confuse with these two. but i find them exactly similar in terms of measurement of variable.
    Is there any difference from Test Setup?.. when to use insulation test?, and when to use cable sheat integrity test?.. and to what cable does this type of test applies?.. medium voltage only?..

    any inputs will be appreciated.

    many thanks!
