ECE5058 - Electrical energy - high voltage engineering

6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSL

Postgraduate Faculty of Engineering

Leader(s): T Czaszejko

Offered

Clayton First semester 2009 (Day)

Synopsis

The unit introduces concepts of high voltage phenomena in the context of design and testing of electrical power plant. The unit describes sources of over voltage in power systems. It then presents fundamentals of high voltage insulation design and condition monitoring methods. It describes insulation performance characteristics and diagnostic methods in plant such as generators, transformers and high voltage cables. The notions of insulation co-ordination and over voltage protection are also established. Additionally, the unit introduces static electricity phenomena, hazards they pose and technology applications they bring.

Objectives

To learn and understand principles of high voltage technology as applied in the design and testing of power system equipment as well as in other industrial applications.
