Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This seminar course gives lectures from a broad range of high voltage and high power electrotechnical applications.

Each seminar will describe the key design aspects and recent development trends for a particular power components such as circuit breakers, transformes, cables, measuring equipment etc.

The main theme of the seminars is an overview of the multiphysical aspects that must be met for each particluar equipment of component. Such aspects could be related to electrical, thermal, mechanical, magnetical dimensioning of the equipment. Seminars are given by lecturers from both the research area and the industry.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the seminar course the student should be able to

Describe the areas of knowledge that is necessary understand for designing high voltage and high power electrical equipment

Show a good knowledge about the state of the art of research and industrial development trends in the area of high voltage and high power equipment

Formulate multiphysical equations in a general form that needs to be solved in designs for high voltage and high power equipment
