Research description:

My research involves a mixture of condition monitoring (in the form of PD monitoring of cables & transformers), lightning protection and earthing analysis. I am also getting involved in the interaction of pipelines & transmission lines.

Laboratory facilities:

We have a HV lab with a 2MV impulse generator, 750kV DC set and 800kV resonant AC set. We also have a number of smaller HV labs. High current facilities include a 10kA 2V transformer and a 20kA impulse generator.
