Professor Dr.-Ing. Andreas Küchler is head of the High Voltage Laboratory Schweinfurt at the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt, Germany. His research interests include insulation systems for AC/DC transmission systems, transformers and bushings, condition assessment of high voltage equipment and industrial applications of high voltage technologies. Until 1991 Prof. Küchler was R&D manager of HSP Hochspannungsgeräte Porz GmbH, Köln (Cologne). He graduated in Electrical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe.
High voltage engineering is not only a key technology for a safe, economic and sustainable electric power supply. Furthermore, a broad spectrum of applications includes most of the innovative fields in engineering and science, such as medical engineering, laser technology, industrial production, automotive engineering, food technology, bioengineering, nanotechnology, environmental protection, recycling, electromagnetic compatibility, scientific research or superconductivity. "High Voltage Engineering: Fundamentals – Technologies – Applications" is based on the 3rd edition of the leading German standard work "Hochspannungstechnik", which is both a textbook for students and a reference book for engineers. It provides a unique and successful combination of scientific foundations, basic principles, modern technologies and practical applications, clearly illustrated by many figures, examples and exercises. It is considered that new challenges for high voltage engineering are brought about by emerging technologies and global development of economies and electricity supply infrastructure, especially in the fast developing countries.
