Half-day Seminar for High Voltage Technology

A half-day seminar for 3rd year students of SKEE4463 High Voltage Technology (Section 1) was held on 14th May 2017 at the institute of High Voltage and High Current’s (IVAT) new seminar room in building P06, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. The seminar was arranged for the students to present the outcome of their research-based assignment which covered several topics learned in the subject of High Voltage Technology, such as insulation coordination, lightning, breakdown theory and generation of high current and high voltage impulse. It was also done to fulfil the requirement of the Teaching-Research Nexus element as stated in the course outline of SKEE4463. A total of 42 students were divided into 9 groups and each group was given 7 minutes for the poster presentation and they were evaluated by three academic panels from IVAT – Dr. Lau Kwan Yiew, Dr. Mohd Hafizi Ahmad and Dr. Noor Azlinda Ahmad. Overall, the “mini seminar” was successfully executed and it is hoped that the students gained useful experience from their assignment and the seminar.
