The UCSI University, Faculty of Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Department, has arranged a site visit to University of Malaya High Voltage Laboratory on the 27th of March 2018.

The visit has started with a brief presentation by Associate Professor Ir. Dr. Hazlee. He has briefly explained on the introduction of University of Malaya High Voltage Laboratory (UMHVL), equipment available and research group. He also has introduced organizational chart of UMHVL, ongoing research projects, publications and facilities available in UMHVL.

The UMHVL serves as a teaching and research lab in the Department of Electrical Engineering. A taught course and lab experiments associated with the lab are provided to undergraduate and postgraduate students. The lab also serves as a training centre, hosts seminars and provides consultation and professional services in the field of high voltage engineering. Among important equipment available are high voltage kit (generation of AC, DC and impulse voltages), partial discharge testing and measuring equipment, soil resistivity and grounding measuring equipment, oil breakdown strength test equipment, potentiostat/ galvanostat, tan delta and capacitance measuring equipment, leakage current measuring system, cable fault location equipment, thermal imager and workstation.

There were few demonstrations conducted for students to gain some knowledge about the high voltage equipment and few students got opportunity to try the demo themselves. This is very beneficial for E&E students especially those are in Year 3 and Year 4.

This site visit was arranged by Asst. Prof. Dr. John Tan Teng Hwang, Head of Department for Electrical & Electronic Engineering (representing IEEE IMS Malaysia Section).
