The 2020 Power Technology and Research (PTeC) and Malaysian High Voltage Network (MyHVnet) Colloquium was successfully held at Universiti Teknologi MARA, Penang, on 03 February 2020. The colloquium, co-organised by IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Malaysia Chapter, MyHVnet and Universiti Teknologi MARA, has seen a strong presence of the high voltage community in Malaysia, as well as members of the DEIS Malaysia Chapter.

The colloquium, as its name implied, was the first colloquium organised by PTeC, but the third colloquium organised by MyHVnet since MyHVnet’s informal inception in 2015 by members from various Malaysian organisations. In the 2020 PTeC and MyHVnet Colloquium, the topics of interest have been expanded to include high voltage, power systems, power electronics, and renewables. The colloquium, which consisted of 2 keynote speeches and about 40 paper presentations, was an excellent opportunity for researchers and engineers to present and discuss their latest findings.

The DEIS Malaysia Chapter wishes to thank all committee members and participants for making the colloquium a success. The DEIS Malaysia Chapter looks forward to engaging in more events like this.
