Thomas Hammarström

Lecturer at Chalmers, Electrical Engineering, Electric Power Engineering, Power grids and Components

I received my Ph.D. degree 2014 in High Voltage Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, where the main focus is on analyzing partial discharges occurring within high voltage insulation at steep voltage fronts, such as PWM. The main goal is to understand and quantify the increased electricall struss caused by such waveforms. This research aims to provide insights will act as an aid to improve the life of high voltage insulation such as motor windings.
