HighVoltage/HighPower Consulting Berlin


Prof. Dr. Jürgen Pannicke

Expert and Consultant Engineer for all Plant and Installations of Electric Power Engineering


Expert for electric power engineering plant and installations officially appointed by and sworn before the Chamber of Industry and Commerce

Ten years of teaching activities as Professor at the University of Applied Science of Berlin in the field of Electric Power Supply

Many years of experience in the testing of electrical plant and installations ranging from 400V to 400kV as Managing Director of the firm IPH Institut "Prüffeld für elektrische Hochleistungstechnik“ GmbH


Fields of Activity

  • Clarification of damage to low- and high-voltage plant and equipment; this includes in particular damage to cables, overhead lines, switchgear, transformers and generators

  • Support in tests and laboratory examinations that need to be carried out in connection with or as a result of the clarification of damage

  • Counselling in connection with and assessment of energy supply concepts; this refers in particular to energy supply networks, their protection and compliance with IEC and VDE regulations

  • Preparation of expert opinions for courts and private purposes in the above-mentioned fields of activities

  • Counselling in connection with management problems, business processes, reorganizations and quality problems, in particular in accordance with the standard applicable to test laboratories - DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025

Damage clarification in the field of high-voltage engineering requires many years of experience because the effects involved are not obvious, such as for example partial discharge in XLPE cables.

Owing to my activity as Managing Director at IPH, it is also possible to make use of an outstanding pool of experience when required.

Destroyed operating equipment (like a voltage transformer in the example on the bottom) requires broad knowledge of the fundamentals of electric power engineering for determining the causes of damage.
