[Course Brochure][Registration Form]
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.
Dr Jing Tao has worked for 30 years as a lecturer and a researcher in the areas of high voltage technology and electrical metrology. He designed and renovated the standard high voltage laboratory in the National Metrology Centre and established related calibration systems. He patented a novel oil tester calibrator which measures high voltage in restricted spaces. His research interests include insulation design, flashover failure analysis, electrostatic charge control, and low frequency electrical metrology. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
