This conference has been created for those working with high voltage systems in the mining, industrial plants, oil and gas utilities industries. The event will focus on earthing, design, testing, installation and maintenance topics. The high voltage installation can range from a substation, auxiliary systems, interconnecting cables/lines and naturally the user’s facilities such as a plant, factory, office facility and mine site. Equipment includes switchgear, transformers, converters, cables, lines, batteries, earthing systems, capacitors, reactors, buildings and structures.

The conference will cover the AS 2067: 2016 HV standard which provides minimum requirements for the design and installation of high voltages above 1kV (ac) so as to provide safe functioning in operation. In addition to HV design and installation, HV maintenance is a challenging undertaking and the Australian industry needs to have the sustainability and reliability of ageing HV equipment at the forefront of their minds when planning and designing their upcoming projects. The conference will discuss problems that arise from HV equipment maintenance and how industry can overcome these issues through well planned maintenance programs, adherance to standards/regulations and forward thinking.

Conference presentations & topics include:

  • International Update – An update on Grounding Design and Testing Standards Directions and Changes around the World
  • Case Studies: Defects identified within high voltage switchgear and cables via online Partial Discharge testing
  • Maximising the Success of Predictive High Voltage Maintenance
  • Transformers – Natural Ester-Retro-filling, Oil testing & Management
  • Partial Discharge Testing on Rotatory Machines
  • Life Management of Power Transformers – Synthetic Ester Retro-filling
  • Wow, I Got To Audit a Wind Farm
  • Off and ON-line Acceptance Testing and Diagnostic testing of Distribution Cables
  • Implementing partial discharge testing & monitoring technology: Real world case studies
  • Practical Case Study: Waverley Park 220kV Transmission Line
  • Arc Flash Hazards in HV Contexts
  • Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA) – ElectraNet Case Study
  • Analysis of Earthing Grids in Multilayer Soils at High Frequencies
  • Workshop: Earthing obligations under AS2067 have changed: What has changed, why, and what do you need to do next
