This is an AICTE approved Short Term Program
Department: Electrical Engineering
Intended audience: Industry participants, Faculty
About: With the rapid increase in power transmission capacity of the power system networks, it has become essential to design and develop reliable, compact, cost-effective insulation systems. To enhance the reliability of the power system network, testing of power apparatus for its performance is very essential. It is therefore very important to educate the academic/industry personnel on the recent trends in high voltage testing techniques. It is expected to help the faculty of engineering colleges industry personnel to update their knowledge in the techniques for testing of power apparatus and understanding the performance characteristics of insulation system
Session dates: 28-02-2022 to 05-03-2022 (6 days)
Time: 9 AM to 12 PM & 2 PM to 5 PM IST
Last date of registration: 25-02-2022
