Consulting on high voltage issues
SELFRAG AG needed advice and support for its development teams in the areas of high voltage and control.
Assessing new design proposals for their suitability for high voltage technology and, in some cases, developing alternatives to them, made up a large part of my advice.
I carried out parametric FEM simulations for the high voltage team. This made it possible to determine which step can increase the efficiency of the high-voltage process to what extent. From the results of the simulations, I derived a strategy for increasing efficiency.
The analysis of faults in customer systems was another task of this mandate. Using suitable tests, I was able to quickly isolate the errors and thus suggest reliable solutions.
To be able to empower the development teams of SELFRAG AG continuing sustainable development after my mandate, I have written detailed design instructions.
