Examples of the possibilities: 

  • High voltage tests at different voltage forms (AC, DC, impulses, composite waveshapes) 
  • Climatic testing even for very large components 
  • Diagnostic measurements for e.g. Smart Grid power network components, insulation systems or material samples 
  • High voltage measurements & metrology 
  • Comprehensive state-of-the-art characterization facilities for dielectric materials and insulation systems (Special expertise & facilities for thin film insulation systems) 
    • Permittivity and dielectric losses 
    • Conductivity & resistivity   
    • Charging & trapping properties  
    • Accurate breakdown strength statistics determinations 
    • Ageing & long-term performance of dielectric systems 
    • Partial discharge diagnostics
