Power Energy Labs

In the Power Energy Labs, you can research and create projects with high voltage and high power. We also have a high-power lab that can be used for simulations and tests.

The facilities consist of High Power Lab, Microgrid facility for simulation and a DC lab.

High power lab

The purpose of the high-power lab is to be able to carry out tests of equipment at high currents and fault conditions.

Examples of equipment that have been previously tested

  • Grounding cables for train systems
  • Circuit breakers
  • HPFI relays (RCD)
  • Transformer house

Possible tests include

  • 1-, 2- and 3-phase faults, with and without neutral/earth
  • Line voltages of 230 V, 400 V and 690 V
  • Connected to the grid through a 10 kV cable and through its own transformer
  • Max short circuit current 50 kA (93 kA peak)
  • Max 1 second duration
  • Standard measurement of current and voltage with the option of other sensors
  • All measurement signals are via optical fibers, so safety is high


  • 10 KV plant
  • Lightning voltage generator
  • Insulators
  • Equipment for testing high current
