High Voltage Engineering and Laboratory

Course Dates: December 8 & 9, 2017

High Voltage Engineering and Laboratory is one of five courses in the Smart Power program. The high voltage short course is specifically designed for engineers and technicians from electric utility companies.  The purpose of the course is to provide opportunities for the utility personnel to observe and enhance their understanding of the mechanisms of high voltage phenomena in a controlled testing environment.  The course will cover safety aspects and practices in the lab, high voltage measurement techniques, flashover along insulators, insulation material breakdown, corona, and electric field effects.


Two-day course outline:

  1. Electric and magnetic fields.
  2. High voltage safety.
  3. Breakdown in gas, liquids and solids (lab demonstrations).
  4. Corona discharge (lab demonstrations).
  5. High voltage power electronics.
