Date: TBD - please contact the program
Location: The Ohio State University, Dreese Lab
Class Time: 8am-5pm


The high voltage one-day course is specifically designed for engineers and technicians from a wide range of industries. The purpose of the course is to provide opportunities for electric engineers and technicians to observe and enhance their understanding of the mechanisms of high voltage phenomena in a controlled testing environment. The course covers safety aspects and practices in the lab, high voltage measurement techniques, flashover along insulators, insulation material breakdown, corona and electric field effects. Partial discharge in wide bandgap power electronics based motor drives will also be discussed and demonstrated.

CEU credits will be provided for this course.


Course outline:
  1. Electric and magnetic fields.
  2. High voltage safety.
  3. Breakdown in gas, liquids and solids (lab demonstrations).
  4. Flashover and corona discharge (lab demonstrations).
  5. Partial discharge in wide bandgap power electronics based motor drives


About the High Voltage Laboratory

The High Voltage and Power Electronics Laboratory consists of a 3600 sq. ft. main high voltage facility and two satellite power electronics laboratories. The high voltage lab is the only one of its kind among the universities in the Midwest. Its operations are strongly supported and heavily utilized by electric power related industries. The power electronics facilities are unique to the universities in State of Ohio and belong to only handful of power electronics labs in the United States that deal with high power applications.
