The subject introduces students with high voltage technique from point of view of its application in power engineering. It brings information about high voltage testing sources and the possibilities of measuring high voltages and big currents. It informs about high voltage insulation systems and methods for determining their states. There are explained particular types of electrical discharges and the possibilities of their elimination. Practical seminars are based on measurements in the high voltage laboratory.

Course outlines:

1. High voltage testing sources.
2. Measurement of high voltages.
3. Impulse measurements; high voltage measurement quality.
