In conjunction with the Dielectrics Tutorial held at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) on 25 May 2017, some members of IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Malaysia Chapter and Malaysian High Voltage Network (MyHVnet) and participants of the tutorial visited the USM High Voltage Laboratory. During the visit, Assoc. Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohamad Kamarol Mohd Jamil introduced various high voltage research facilities available in the laboratory and briefed the visitors on the research activities carried out in the laboratory.
The main objectives of the visit were to expose the visitors on the high voltage facilities available at USM and to initiate potential collaborations relevant to high voltage engineering. Dr. Mohamad Kamarol also took the opportunity to promote IEEE DEIS to the visitors and encourage them to become members of IEEE DEIS. IEEE DEIS Malaysia Chapter and MyHVnet thanked Dr. Mohamad Kamarol for his courtesy during the visit.
