High Voltage Apparatus II

No. Course Catalog: 35902 & 35904

This course discusses the construction, operation, types, insulation techniques, design, insulation coordination, requirements, fabrication, problems, testing, installation, and maintenance and repair of high voltage components such as transformers, overhead lines, high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission systems, and superconducting systems in power systems. 


DESCRIPTION

Students will gain knowledge of:

  • Transformers (structure, operation, types, manufacture, insulation, testing, installation)
  • Overhead lines (structure, operation, travelling waves, comparison with cables and GIL)
  • High voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission systems
  • Superconducting equipment
  • Nuclear fusion (structure, operation, current projects, comparison with current generation systems)
  • Insulation coordination and standards
  • Lightning protection and EMC

At the end of the course, students will be able to compare and assess requirements for different transmission and generation systems. They have basic knowledge in the area of insulation coordination, lightning protection and EMC. In addition, they know the handling and significance of standards in the high-voltage range.
