High Voltage Engineering
High voltage engineering is a part of electrical engineering that pertains to very high voltages and it encompasses the study and application of different electrical phenomena occurring in various media at high voltages. Offering an extensive domain of research and exploration, High Voltage Engineering is a refined branch of Electrical Engineering Department in National Institute of Technology, Calicut.
The Master’s course primarily aims to impart the students a deeper physical understanding of high voltage technologies and also to connect to different areas of current research interest, such as polymeric outdoor insulation, advanced measuring techniques and diagnostics etc. The goal of the program is to equip the students to apply the enhanced knowledge in advanced technologies for modeling, analyzing and solving contemporary issues related to high voltage engineering with a global prospective. Students are provided with laboratory aids to brace their fundamentals and get familiarized with present day software tools.
The active research group in high voltage engineering delves into diverse extents of the field with a significant focus on the current trends and applications of high voltage technologies. Members of the faculty are actively involved in sponsored research and consultancy works. The R&D projects undertaken by the faculty have been sponsored by the various government agencies like Defense Research & Development Organization (DRDO), Department of Science & Technology (DST) etc.
