Two members of the Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory won two best Poster awards at the 14th Universities High Voltage Network Colloquium
Two members of the Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory, University of Southampton, won two best Poster awards at the 14th Universities High Voltage Network Colloquium (UHVnet). Jing Nan (PhD student) received the best poster award in the PhD category and Xintong Ren (Post-doc) won the best poster award in the post-doctoral category. The 14th UHVnet was hosted by Cardiff University and features 6 contributions from staff and students of the TDHVL. In addition, Dr. Stratis Batzelis presented an overview of the Tony Davis High Voltage and other Electric Power Research Activities at the University of Southampton. The UHVnet was set up in 2004, by a group of universities (which currently includes, The University of Southampton, Staffordshire University, Cardiff University, Glasgow Caledonian University, Leicester University, Liverpool University, The University of Manchester and The University of Strathclyde). The UHVnet was formed to further the interests of high voltage research within the United Kingdom. Specific objectives of the group include raising the awareness of the research capabilities of group members to UK high-voltage related industry, particularly manufacturers and electricity supply companies. The UHVNet is an annual colloquium which brings together key players from industry and academia in the field of High Voltage engineering. It also serves as a welcoming platform for PhD students and researchers to present their research to the community.
