Introduction

The State Key Laboratory of Electrical Insulation and Power Equipment at Xi’an Jiaotong University of China was established in 1991 and formally opened to the public in 1995. At present, the laboratory is led by the director Professor WANG Jianhua and the director of the academic committee, Professor Ma Weiming, who is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

The laboratory’s research fields are mainly:

1) Structures, properties, characterizations and applications of dielectric materials

2) Electrical equipment and its intelligentization

3) Insulation systems of electric power equipment and their life management

4) Advanced technology of electrical engineering and their applications

Each field focuses further on global competitiveness and effectiveness in the frontier of electrical insulation and electric power equipment. The laboratory has undertaken a number of large-scale projects, and its contributions have been recognized through a series of awards, including nine national awards and 45 provincial awards in scientific research, 532 invention patents and more than 5,000 papers since 2003. The laboratory has promoted international academic cooperation and exchanges. It has hosted and organized 28 international conferences in the last decade. Its staff serve 301 times on the committees and editorial  boards of important national and international academic organizations. Our key research has generated approximately $320 million in profit via scientific and engineering technology commercializing.

The laboratory has 70 full-time faculty staffs (65 researchers, four technicians, and one administrative staff member). The laboratory employs 19 technicians and secretaries. The current faculty includes one academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and one academician the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Four professors were appointed within the Recruitment Program of Foreign Experts, two was selected in National Hundred, Thousand and Ten Thousand Talent Project, four professors have been awarded The National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, and one professor was designated a Nationally Distinguished Teacher. The laboratory has five Ministry of Education (MOE) Changjiang Scholars and 18 MOE New Century Excellent Talents in University. Additionally, there are two adjunct academicians, six senior professors, 165 guest researchers, 19 post doctorates and 753 PhD and MSc students.

Furthermore, the laboratory has many advanced instruments and state-of-the-art facilities. These facilities are nationally competitive and capable of providing precise and systematic research tools to prospective investigators. As a world-renowned source for remarkable contributions in scientific research, education, academic exchange, and technology commercializing in the field of electric power in China, we are proud of our research, our accomplishments, and our growing team of scholars and researchers.
