API and CIGRE Present High Voltage Masterclass series

By ANC, 1 February 2018

Tagged API, master class, High Voltage, HV

The Master Class in “Outdoor High Voltage Insulators” is intended to provide an understanding of the factors which dictate the behavior of overhead line and substation insulators and to generate an appreciation of the parameters which have a significant influence on their performance and life.

The emphasis of the course is definitely on the “practical”, and simple procedures, decision tables, flow charts and inspection sheets are included to assist those involved in the design and operation of electrical transmission and distribution systems.




Dr Wallace Vosloo, (Pr.Eng, NHD, BSc (Physics), PhD(Eng.Sci), FSAIEE, SMIEEE)

Dr. Vosloo has over 25 years of experience in the field of High Voltage Engineering. He Corporate Specialist High Voltage at Eskom and presents various training courses in the field of High Voltage Engineering.
He has authored and co-authored over 100 papers in topics related to the field of high voltage insulators. He has also written the books “The Practical Guide to Outdoor High Voltage Insulators”, co-authored by Roy Macey
and Dr C de Tourreil and “High Voltage Engineering Practice and Theory” along with Dr JP Holtzhausen.

Dr Vosloo is a recipient of the SAIEE President’s Award for his contribution to the development of high voltage insulator research and investigation capabilities and standards in South Africa and the Claude de Tourreil
Memorial Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Field of Electrical Insulation. He is also an active member of various national and international working groups.

If you are interested in or work in the High Voltage Insulation area, make sure you take advantage of this opportunity to listen to and be instructed by one of the worlds acknowledged experts in the field.
