HyTEPS (hub Catalyst) organizes Power Tour

HyTEPS (hub Catalyst) organizes Power Tour

26 Jul 2021

HyTEPS, located in the Catalyst hub on the TU/e ​​campus, will organize a Power Tour several times in the autumn, in various places in the country.

The tour gives you insights into measuring and controlling your electrical installations. The tour will take place on September 30 in Eindhoven, October 14 in Groningen, November 11 in Utrecht and again on November 25 in Eindhoven.

More complex installations and challenges

The energy transition and implementation of an increasingly wide range of innovative electronics brings all kinds of challenges. Both designers of electrical installations and installation managers have to deal with this on a daily basis. Controlling the - increasingly complex - installation requires more and more specialist knowledge. HyTEPS would like to support you in this. They do this in part by sharing knowledge during physical seminars in the autumn. To increase the efficiency of participating in one of our seminars, they come to different places in the country. By having the seminar take place at 3 locations in the Netherlands - north, center and south - they shorten the travel distance and make participation easier.

Lectures by professor Sjef Cobben and HyTEPS

During the seminar, prof.dr.ir. J. F. G. Cobben gives you insights into measuring and controlling electrical installations, based on his scientific background, especially in the field of Power Quality. You can find more about this subject in his white paper 'Relieving the installation manager's worries'. HyTEPS supplements this with information about the practical support that HyTEPS can offer with measuring, monitoring and specialist simulations.

Topics during the seminar:

  • Relieving the installation manager

The work of the installation manager is becoming increasingly important and complex. More important because the continuity of almost all companies is related to the proper functioning of the electrical installation and more complex because the electrical installation and the connected components are becoming increasingly complex and sensitive. Add to this the great shortage of well-trained technicians, the increase in the number and complexity of standards, the increase in the sensitivity of equipment to insufficient voltage quality and the quantitative growth of polluting equipment, the conclusion could be that the installation manager within companies are not to be envied.

  • More control through monitoring

The importance of insight into the energy flows of the installation is greater than ever. The energy transition demands the maximum from our electricity networks and it is a "must" to guarantee quality and delivery reliability. The increasing demand for electrical energy places a greater burden on electrical installations and the risks of unplanned outages are increasing. In addition to overload, Power Quality also plays a crucial role in optimal operation of the installation and can even create more free space within the installation. More and better insight through monitoring offers the installation manager more control over the installation, so that he can anticipate possible risks in good time. Insight into the load on the installation, but also the status of the installation, helps you to optimally manage the installation and keep your finger on the pulse.

  • Reducing risks through simulation

Running simulations has many advantages; it limits risks and problems, is cost-effective and increases insight into the electrical installation. There are numerous simulation services  with which the installation manager can be supported and relieved. With the right knowledge, years of experience and professional tools, they not only ensure that existing risks and problems in an electrical installation are solved, but HyTEPS can also predict possible future problems. However, simulation is also craftsmanship, if wrong data goes in, wrong data also comes out.


  • Sjef Cobben: During the seminar, Prof.dr.ir. J.F.G (Sjef) Cobben discusses the importance of controlling the process.
  • Christan van Dorst: Christan is Technical Engineering Manager at HyTEPS. During the lecture, the specialist simulations and monitoring total package - or 'Total Power Insight & Improvement' (TPI&I) - will be highlighted.
  • Seymour Pijpers: Seymour is Sr. Technical Engineer at HyTEPS. The HyTEPS lectures will be delivered by either Christan or Seymour.
