Synopsis : High voltage engineering is an important area in power system. The students
will be exposed to the concept and theory of insulation breakdown. Key
principles of high voltage technology and insulation coordination as well as
insulation testing (including high voltage generators) are also covered.
Lightning overvoltages due to the naturally occurring atmospheric
phenomenon are a nuisance to the network and will be discussed along with
switching surges. Various types of electrical discharges, some of which are
used for condition monitoring applications, are also discussed. The student is
expected to be able to communicate effectively as well as to design selected
high voltage components and subsystems.
