Introduction of Laboratory
Electric power transmission and distribution equipment is important and indispensable infrastructure that supports our highly electrified modern society. Its operation and maintenance should realize high reliability and low wheeling charge. From technical perspective, mainly from the viewpoint of electrical insulation, we are developing diagnosis techniques for such as underground cables and power transformers. In addition, we are trying to introduce the asset management techniques to find optimal maintenance and renewal strategies from economic perspective by utilizing the diagnosis information. The movement of the introduction of the asset management technique is a global trend, including in Japan.
