- Offered for Year: 2017/18
- Module Leader(s): Dr Charles Su
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Singapore
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
The aim of this module is to provide students with an understanding of high voltage engineering, phenomena and technology and to introduce basic high voltage generation and measurement techniques.
Outline Of Syllabus
• High voltage breakdown mechanisms: Withstand levels and S curves; coordination of insulation; high voltage breakdown mechanisms in solids, liquids, gases and in a vacuum.
• Partial Discharge: Insulation resistance, tan 'delta', partial discharge measurements; Non-destructive testing of apparatus.
• Switchgear: Switchgear types; principles of operation; arcs; interruptions switching phenomena; standards.
• HV testing: Production of HV test voltages; impulse generators; measurement of high voltages.
• System overvoltages: Power frequency and harmonic overvoltages, switching and lightning overvoltages; overvoltage protection devices.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Lectures provide core material and guidance for further reading. Problem solving is introduced through lectures and practiced during private study.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
