5th High Voltage Conference – 27th & 28th July 2016 – Sydney, Australia

IDC Technologies was proud to host the 5th High Voltage Conference in Sydney on the 27th & 28th July 2016. The event attracted delegates from over40 organisations across Australia, and had 15 presentations from industry professionals with a passion for high voltage engineering.

Keynote speaker Alex Baitch, Chair of EL043 High Voltage Installations, presented two topics entitled Substation Installations: Revision of AS 2067, and Future Trends in High Voltage Systems – A Sustainable Energy Future. Alex was highly acclaimed as a valuable presenter by the delegates as he shared all the key points which are included in the new AS 2067 and answered dozens of industry related questions.

Other speakers included; Ken Budin (Budin Philipp), Philip Reilly (TxMonitor), Antony Giacomin (TJH2b Analytical Services), John Giles (Appleseed Engineering) and Stephen Palmer (Safearth) to name a few.

Other presentations from the conference were entitled:

  • High Voltage Equipment: Avoiding Transformer Failures with Oil and Electrical Testing
  • Effective Life Management of Power Transformers
  • Operational Prudence of Electricity Networks
  • Will Earthing to AS 2067 Be Better? What Has Changed and What it Means for You.
  • Standardising of HV Training throughout Australia
  • Recent Changes to Arc Flash Standards and Hazard Reduction Equipment: What Does This Mean for Australian Workplaces?
  • High Voltage Power Cable Current Ratings
  • High Voltage Equipment: Keeping it Safe and Operational via Insulating Fluid Testing
  • Partial Discharge Testing of a Switchboard and Cables – A Case Study
  • What’s New in AS2067 for Civil / Structural / Fire Engineers
  • Project Case Study: Substation Asset Renewals and Assessment
  • Arc Flash Incident and Assessment Studies
  • Sweep Frequency Response Analysis of Power Distribution Transformers

As expected, Alex Baitch was nominated most valuable speaker by the delegates with keynote presentation Substation Installations: Revision of AS 2067, followed by Stephen Palmer’s enthralling presentation about earthing and its changes in the AS 2067. Antony Giacomin’s presentation was also highly regarded and was voted most valuable presentation at both the 3rd and 4th High Voltage Conference in previous years, a captivating and entertaining presentation.

A big thank you to the sponsors of the event:  Transmission and Distribution Magazine and Engineering Institute of Technology.
