Metrology Upgrading Programme - High Voltage Measurement & Testing Techniques

Course Outline

This course covers the principles of testing high voltage generations and measurements. High voltage phenomena of lightning, partial discharge, dielectric losses, breakdown and discharge, and electrostatic charge accumulation and their respective testing methods will be introduced. Electric field-steering techniques will also be discussed for testing and safety designs.

This course will be valuable for electrical engineers, electricians, researchers and consultants involved in high voltage design, testing, calibration, operation and system maintenance.
