ICDL 2014, BledJul, 2014
The 4-day 18th international Conference on Dielectric Liquids (ICDL 2014) finished on 3 July 2014 in Bled. It was organised by EIMV within the scope of the IEEE DEIS and participated by 150 experts from 28 countries and 6 continents, who presented their research achievements and exchanged experience in the field of basic and applied research on dielectric liquids, the diagnostics of devices with dielectric liquids. The best papers by young researchers was also awarded at the conference, i.e. the first paper was authored by Farzaneh Vahidi from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, entitled “Influence of Electrode Material on Conductivity Measurements under DC Stress”, and Wu Lu from the University of Manchester, United Kingdom, the paper was entitled “Lightning Impulse Breakdown Performance of an Inhibited Gas-To-Liquid (GTL) Hydrocarbon Transformer Oil”. The researchers from the EIMV presented three papers: “Methods for Monitoring Age-Related Changes in Transformer Oils” (Nataša Bernard, Biljana Čuček, Tim Gradnik, Maja Končan-Gradnik), “Temperature and Chemical Impact on Determination of Water Content in Dielectric Liquids by Capacitive Moisture Sensors” (Tim Gradnik, Biljana Čuček, Maja Končan-Gradnik), “The Identification of Systematic Error in Determining the Average Temperature of Power Transformer Insulation Obtained by Comprehensive Analysis of an Authentic On-Site Condition Assessment Database” (Miha Bečan, Ivo Kobal, Jalen Štremfelj, Maks Babuder).
We are very proud and content with the fact that the conference was implemented and concluded successfully, and that all participants were very satisfied with the outcome. We would like to thank all local and foreign sponsors: ELES, Kolektor Etra, MIDEL, ERGON and NYNAS.
The next, 19th Conference on Dielectric Liquids will be held in Manchester, UK, in 2017. Please, find more information about this year’s conference at: http://icdl2014.com.
