High Voltage and Material Processing Laboratories at Clarkson University

The Clarkson University High Voltage laboratory specializes in the testing and evaluation of high voltage devices and materials including fuse cutouts, insulators, switch gear, conductors, cable insulation, sensors and Smartgrid technologies, and more.


Devices and materials may be exposed to high voltage stressing through a 200kV AC generator test set, a 1.2MV Marx-type impulse generator, and more to measure breakdown voltages, partial discharge characterisitics/corona, insulation withstand voltages, etc. Both high voltage and accelerated aging tests are performed to industry standards.

The Clarkson University High Voltage laboratory is a non-industrial facility that performs independent testing for manufacturers, utilities, research institutions, entrepreneurs and others.
