Objectives:After successful participation, the students have experience and knowledge of practical work in a high-voltage laboratory and can carry out high voltage laboratory tests.
The form of the lab course with intensive and autonomous group work requires that the students deal with different communication and working styles in their groups. Accordingly, the students are able to independently apply the basics of classical project management, such as team organization, task planning and division of labor. In this way, they have trained social skills such as teamwork, criticism and communication skills. Furthermore, they have the competence to find solutions to problems and to select the right methods, to conduct research and independent acquisition of knowledge as well as to present and comprehensively document work results.
Course contents:Depending on the availability of the laboratory, various laboratory tests and experiments are offered in order to deepen the theoretical knowledge from the lectures through practical lab experience. In addition to the consideration of safety aspects, different laboratory experiments can be realized, e.g. electric strength and discharges in gases and generation of high voltages for testing purposes.
