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”.
IEEE PES: HIGHVOLT presents mobile transformer test system for wind turbines
At the IEEE PES Conference and Trade Fair from April 17 to 19 in Denver (USA), HIGHVOLT will showcase the new WV 18-18/1.4 test system. It was designed specifically to assess the condition of transformers right in the wind turbine nacelles. If the system detects imminent damage, countermeasures can be taken immediately. This saves wind farm operators a lot of time and enables them to avoid unnecessary downtime.
wire 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.
HICADEMY combines theory and practice
Sometimes it’s a phone call from Sweden, sometimes an e-mail from Egypt, another time a registration from Poland. As soon as HIGHVOLT publishes the HICADEMY program, inquiries come in from all over the world.
