CIGRE 2018: HIGHVOLT presents system for real-time fault location
Where is the fault? Searching for breakdowns in miles of medium-voltage and high-voltage cabling is a little bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. Previously, a fault could only be pinpointed offline after a malfunction had occurred. The measurement needed would then be complex and time-consuming, and often additional investigation was needed before the fault could be localized.
On good partnership
Almost 40 HIGHVOLT representatives from 33 countries met in Prague from 26 to 28 June. The three-day seminar focused on workshops and training courses on new products and services as well as lectures on current technologies and trends in high-voltage testing technology.
Play it safe, go mobile
In South Africa, many power and transformer stations are difficult to reach. The demand for an inexpensive method of testing power transformers on site is correspondingly high. Our long experience and expertise with mobile systems has convinced our partner Reinhausen South Africa. Now the first testing truck for transformers is on the way on the African continent - with special equipment from HIGHVOLT. We looked over the technicians' shoulders during their first deployment in Johannesburg.
Visiting HIGHVOLT on May 22, 50 students and staff from the Institute for High-Voltage Technology (IFHT) at RWTH Aachen University had an absolutely electric experience. On a technology study excursion, they learned about the world of control engineering, high-voltage technology and testing. The most impressive stop on their visit at HIGHVOLT was doubtless the tour of the high-voltage testing hall, where several factory acceptance testing units were set up.
2017 HIGHVOLT Award goes to Benjamin Küchler
Benjamin Küchler is this year’s winner of the HIGHVOLT Award for the best final thesis. The graduate of Electrical Energy Systems at Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences wrote his thesis on “Analyzing fault records to evaluate disturbances in electrical power supply systems”.
