1. Vision statement

The High Voltage Laboratory of the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, was established in 1955 as the first high voltage laboratory in Thailand. Since then the Laboratory has been used extensively for education, research, and services. It serves as a resource for student laboratory work, supplementing a number of electrical engineering courses. This service is also extended to students of other institutions, thereby economizing the resources of these institutions. In addition, some intensive courses in high voltage engineering are offered to practicing electrical engineers.

The High Voltage Laboratory is available to both undergraduate and graduate students for research activities. Frequently, the results lead to development of local electrical products, such as high voltage equipment for electrical power systems and educational equipment for high voltage laboratories of other universities.

The High Voltage Laboratory has been assigned responsibility by the Thai Government for testing electrical products for compliance with Thai Industrial Standards, as well as with other international and national standards, such as IEC, ANSI, AS, etc. The high voltage test facilities have been used to analyze the problems of insulation in power systems and the characteristics and performances of the high voltage equipment.

Research is carried out by both students and faculty members. In the past, the High Voltage Laboratory research program aimed at design and construction of high voltage generators and dividers using materials available in Thailand. Items of equipment successfully built include high voltage kits, impulse generators, and SF6 transformers.

Currently, the research programs and activities of the High Voltage Laboratory focus more on basic research to collect fundamental data to support the design of high voltage equipment and to predict the condition of insulating materials. Apart from basic research, the High Voltage Laboratory also develops surge generator and high voltage measuring instruments. Most financial support comes from the Center of Excellence in Electrical Power Technology.
