Biography

1. Operating an Independent Accredited Laboratory in a Large Manufacturing Organization
2. Influence of Variation in Rain Parameters on Flashover Voltage of Insulators

Dr. Windmar received a Ph.D. degree in high voltage engineering from Uppsala University in Sweden. His professional experience includes extensive work in such areas as insulators (production, testing, materials), high power testing, high voltage testing and dielectric insulation. He has held several management positions at ABB and since 2009 has served as Vice President, Testing at STRI.

1. ISO/IEC 17025 specifies requirements for the competence, impartiality and consistent operation of test laboratories, regardless of size and ownership, and was developed to promote confidence in their operation. It also contains requirements that enable labs to demonstrate they operate competently and are able to generate valid results. The presentation describes how it is to run an accredited laboratory within a large manufacturing organization such as Hitachi Energy while at the same time continuing to serve the global market for high voltage testing, including tests for competitive manufacturers.
