Webinair: Research in High Voltage and Insulation Engineering of UHV-class Electric Power Equipment

April 30 @ 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

 Research in High Voltage and Insulation Engineering of UHV-class Electric Power Equipment 

Presented by Shigemitsu OKABE

The University of Tokyo, Japan

April 30, 2024, at 9:00 AM CET/ 4:00 PM JST


Abstract- For ultra-high-voltage (UHV) systems together with high-voltage facilities, more rationalized insulation coordination and equipment design are required. To this end, making large-scale and long-term field lightning-strike observations, large amount of and practical experiments, and introducing new analysis techniques have enabled the development of advanced technologies capable of transforming conventional techniques. This webinar reviews what has been developed in the Japanese electric power company in this regard, and specifically highlights the three fields of (1) Lightning current in actual field and lightning surge analysis, (2) Basic insulation characteristics of GIS, Transformer, (3) Insulating test of lightning impulse, AC, PD.


Bio: Shigemitsu OKABE received the Dr. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1986. He had been with Tokyo Electric Power Company since 1986, been the executive researcher since 2015, and published about 400 peer-reviewed academic papers including 200 IEEE papers. He served as the visiting scientist at the TU Munich, the guest professors at the Doshisha University and Nagoya university about 10 years each. Further he has worked as the secretary/member at several tens of AG/WG/MT in CIGRE and IEC. He received the Minister’s Award from MEXT in 2015, the IEC Awards from TC42 in 2016, from TC28/99 in 2017, and the CIGRE Award from SC-D1 in 2018, respectively. He had been the Associate Editor of the IEEE DEIS. Presently he works for the University of Tokyo as the Project Executive Adviser.
