Founded in 2003, High Voltage and Insulation Technology Discipline is one of the fastest growing disciplines in the School of Electrical Engineering. It has been
authorized to confer Ph.D. degree and Master degree in engineering, with a post-doctoral research station of Electrical Engineering founded.
This discipline is committed to the research of basic theory, innovative technology and application in the field of high voltage and insulation technology, and it also places special emphasis on the development of new and interdisciplinary areas. Its main research fields are: UHV transmission and transformation technology, HV smart grid electromagnetic apparatus technology, physics of lightning and large air gap discharge, HV electromagnetic environment technology, pulsed power technology and plasma discharge, applied electromagnetism, economical type fault current limiter, on-line monitoring and fault diagnosis technology, HV power electronics technology, new type transmission technology, etc.
Based on this discipline, Shandong Provincial Key Laboratory of UHV Transmission Technology and Equipment has been established officially in 2015. This discipline has undertaken Sixteen national research projects sponsored by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National 863 Plan, etc. 20 provincial research projects sponsored by Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars in Shandong Province, Program for New Century Excellent Talents from Ministry of Education of China, etc. and other 50 industry research projects in recent years. Nearly 300 high-level research papers and 2 monographs were published and First Prize,Second Prize and Third Prize of Shandong Province Scientific and Technological Progress one each were awarded.
