Bo Huang receives award at ISH 2015
The 19th International Symposium On High Voltage Engineering (ISH) was held successfully in Pilsen, Czech Republic from August 23 to 28, 2015. ISH is a comprehensive electrical conference, with topics including Electromagnetic fields, High voltage testing techniques and advanced materials. The conference attracted almost 580 attendees from 39 countries. ISH has a reputation for encouraging the presentation of latest scientific results from young researchers. Professor George Chen, Ziyun Li and Bo Huang attended ISH on behalf of the Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory (TDHVL) and gave oral presentations. Bo Huang, a first year PHD student in TDHVL, presented a paper on ‘Space charge characteristics and the electric field distortion after polarity reversal operation in two layers of oil-impregnated paper and oil’ which was very well received. His paper was subsequently recognised as one of the top 20 papers presented and he was awarded the “Young Researcher Award” for achievements in his research to date. “I will keep working hard and I am proud to be a part of TDHVL” said Bo Huang. “This is further confirmation that the research we are undertaking in paper/oil insulation systems is world leading” said Prof Paul Lewin, Director of the TDHVL.
