Project: Standards and software to maximise end user uptake of NMI calibrations of dynamic force, torque and pressure sensors

In order to minimise energy losses, electricity is transmitted through electricity grids at high voltage and low current. Efficiency requirements are driving the development of new products which can operate at higher grid voltages and with lower losses. Equipment for high voltage grids needs to be verified to check it can withstand operating conditions including high voltage and high current surges. System voltages are reaching levels higher than those covered by existing calibration standards. Traceable test methods need to be extended into the ultra-high voltage range to ensure the quality and reliability of products. This project will develop the measurement capability needed to prove the quality of equipment for high-voltage grids, and help to maintain the competitiveness of the European high-voltage electrical power industry.
