The laboratory is equipped with components capable of performing standard as well as non-standard insulation tests for high-voltage equipment, such as, switchgear, transformers, insulators, cables, etc. up to a test voltage of 250 kV with alternating voltages (ac), direct voltages (dc) or impulse voltages of various wave-shapes.
- To facilitate the students to design, construct and test different types of high-voltage generators and circuits.
- To give the students hands-on experience by observing partial discharges and breakdowns in gaseous, liquid and solid insulating materials.
- To enhance student motivation, encourage student discussion and promote more complete understanding of different types of high voltage circuits.
