High Voltage Laboratory

Welcome in the High Voltage Laboratory of HSR Rapperswil 

Overview 

Thanks to our extensive experience in high voltage engineering we can provide high quality research and support in all high voltage related areas. 

The equipment in our new laboratory is state of the art 

  • 800kV 40kJ Impulse generator
  • 150kV 40kVA AC test transformer
  • +/- 270kV Direct current cascade
  • 60kV 108kJ Capacitor bank

 

Our research and test experience covers a broad range of expertise:

  • lightning impulse tests according to IEC 60060-1
  • partial discharge measurements with AC and DC
  • disconnector tests according to IEC 62271-102 with a synthetic test circuit
  • insulation tests with AC and DC
  • long time voltage endurance tests
  • measurement of very fast transients
