EEE521-High Voltage Engineering


The course is designed to give electrical engineering students understanding and learning of high voltage techniques, the behaviour of insulating materials under the stress of high electrical voltage and the ability to test them electrically for forming high voltage equipments and insulation systems, generation and measurements of high AC, DC and impulse voltages and currents and their circuits, sphere and uniform field gaps. Electrical breakdown in gasses, liquid and solid, Townsend’s breakdown criterion, Paschen’s law, Streamer mechanisms, breakdown in non-uniform field and corona, electrical break down of dielectric liquids and solids, insulating materials are also covered.
