What we do
We regularly collaborate with other faculties, including the School of Chemistry, School of Mathematics and NOCS, as well as industries such as National Grid, Network Rail, and other key players of the sector.
Our team publishes extensively in refereed journals and have a strong presence in key conferences of the field. We have also organised in the past a few such events, such as the 2007 9th IEEE International Conference on Solid Dielectrics in Winchester and the 2015 IEEE Electrical Insulation Conference in Seattle.
We provide a range of commercial testing activities, certified to ISO9001:2015 (Quality), ISO14001:2015 (Environmental) and ISO 45001:2018 (Health and Safety) under the scope 'Development, product type testing and consultancy services related to high voltage plant and accessories'.
We test to a range of ISO, BS EN and ASTM standards relating to high voltage plant, accessories, and phenomena. We also develop bespoke testing within the same remit in line with the scope and capabilities.
