High voltage insulation can be very important in a variety of commercial, scientific, and defense oriented applications. These include lasers, radar systems, particle accelerators, sterilization and medical applications, etc. QuickField can be a powerful tool in predicting potential HV insulation issues during the design phase and avoiding them during the hardware assembly and testing periods when costly design changes and mitigation techniques might be necessary. This webinar will cover a few design examples and show how QuickField can be used in this manner, presented by Mr. Richard Ness, Senior member of the IEEE and Technical Chair for the upcoming IEEE Power Modulator Conference in 2010.
