"Contribution on Operational Status Assessment of High Voltage (H.V.) Equipment and Installations using advanced Measuring Systems and Fuzzy Logic Techniques"


This PhD thesis is aiming on the investigation on the phenomena affecting the operational condition of the high voltage equipment and the faults and malfunctions detected on the equipment and installations. Τhis thesis is aiming on the development of a novel monitoring methodology, using new measuring devices, for the High Voltage equipment and installations. Another scope of this thesis is to contribute in the current prediction methodologies applied in the high voltage equipment using fuzzy logic technics, in order to improve the reliability and availability of the installations and improve the maintenance approaches.
