Nord-IS 21

27th Nordic Insulation Symposium on Materials, Components and Diagnostics

NORDIS intro

The symposium is an interdisciplinary Nordic forum for open discussion of ideas, research results and practical experience on electrical power insulation. It addresses itself to researchers and engineers working in research institutes, power industry and power supply and is also open for participants from outside the Nordic countries. Contributions from young researchers are particularly welcome.

The preferential subject of the first day of the symposium will be:

Influence of combined voltages on dielectric materials

Papers outside the preferential subject will be accepted for presentation at the second day of the Symposium. In practice, all subjects from previous Nord-IS sessions will be included, e.g.;

  • Insulation materials and systems
  • Ageing and breakdown phenomenon
  • Measurement and testing techniques
  • Condition assessment and monitoring
  • Insulation co-ordination
  • Modelling and simulation
