Standards for traceable testing of electrical grid components to prevent disruption from operational events.
The reliability of high voltage electricity grids crucially depends on adequate testing of grid components. One of these tests involves the application of composite and combined wave shapes. However, at present, there is inadequate traceability of these wave shapes possibly resulting in incorrect test results.
Project will investigate the interaction of impulse voltages superimposed with AC and DC voltages enabling optimised and traceable test setups to be created.
VTT MIKES coordinates development of a modular voltage divider and evaluation software package for combined and composite wave shapes.
