Behind the Scenes – High Voltage Lab

Dr. Ian Cotton provides a guided tour of the University of Manchester high voltage facility. This is the largest university facility in the U.K. and is pretty advanced. This type of facility is used for high voltage testing of radomes and diverter strips along with power industry components. Everything in this lab works in hundreds of thousand of volts – more than enough to kill you. The flashover testing of high voltage insulators is really impressive. Cheers!
