Traceability and mutual recognition of impulse voltage measurements

Project Description

The objectives of this project are :

- developing and establishing a generally acepted impulse/DC conversion for high voltage measurements

- setting the scientific bais for mutual acceptance of impulse voltage measurements within and beteen the participating countries, and also in general, mutual recognition and acceptance of reference measuring systems and calibration certificates of high impulse voltage measurements

- to further develop the impulse voltage measurements and intercomparison techniques and to address difficult situations like testing with and measurements of full and front-chopped impulses superimposed with noise, oscillations and overshoot.

The objectives are dealt with by performing intercomparison measurements at 1 kV level and 400 kV level. The objectives also relate ti improving the infrastructure in the countries by improving measurements, calibration sevices and mutual recognition of tests and calibrations.
