Institute of High Voltage & High Current
The Institute of High Voltage and High Current (IVAT) of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia was established in 1991. It was initially an educational laboratory which provides facilities for carrying out experiments, research and consultancy services in high voltage engineering beginning as early as the 1970s. The establishment of IVAT stems out from the needs of the country for a center which carries out research and development, test and calibration works in high voltage areas, so that efficient technologies and power system apparatus can be effectively employed for the transmission and distribution to the consumer of electrical energy. In 1992, the institute became the first institution in the country to be accredited to handle high voltage test and calibration works according to ISO/IEC Guide 25. In 2004, IVAT was accredited with the ISO/IEC 17025 in the field of high voltage electrical calibration. In certification, IVAT has also successfully migrated to MS ISO/IEC 17025 since July 2007 till date. Recently in 2013, IVAT was accredited with the on-site calibration and the scope of calibration had been extended up to 180 kV AC (alternating current), 180 kV DC (direct current) and 140 kV impulse.
