“One way to facilitate the efficient transport of electricity is an increase in the direct current voltage level. However, an increase in the transmission voltage adversely affects the insulation material. The resulting higher electric field stresses could be handled if the electrical conductivity of the insulation material was reduced sufficiently”, explains Xiangdong Xu, research specialist at the Department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology

About Us

Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg conducts research and education in technology and natural sciences at a high international level. The university has 3100 employees and 10,000 students, and offers education in engineering, science, shipping and architecture. With scientific excellence as a basis, Chalmers promotes knowledge and technical solutions for a sustainable world. Through global commitment and entrepreneurship, we foster an innovative spirit, in close collaboration with wider society.The EU’s biggest research initiative – the Graphene Flagship – is coordinated by Chalmers. We are also leading the development of a Swedish quantum computer. Chalmers was founded in 1829 and has the same motto today as it did then: Avancez – forward. --- Images provided in Chalmers University of Technology press releases are, unless specified otherwise, free for download and publication as long as credit is given to the University and the individual creator.
