In conjunction with the Institute of Power Engineering Technical Lecture held at Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) on 26th July 2018, members of IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Malaysia Chapter and Malaysian High Voltage Network (MyHVnet) and participants of the lecture visited UNITEN’s High Voltage Laboratory.

During the visit, Dr. Muhamad Safwan Abd Rahman introduced various high voltage research facilities available at the laboratory and briefed the visitors on the research activities carried out at the laboratory. The main objectives of the visit were to expose the visitors on the high voltage facilities available at UNITEN and to initiate potential collaborations relevant to high voltage engineering. DEIS members also took the opportunity to promote DEIS to the visitors and encourage them to become members of DEIS.

The IEEE DEIS Malaysia Chapter and MyHVnet wish to thank Dr. Muhamad Safwan for his courtesy during the visit.
