Conference Scope

IEEE International Conference on Dielectric Liquids (ICDL) is a research-oriented conference focused on the exchange and discussion of ideas, results and practical experience of properties, dielectric phenomena and applications of insulating liquids. It addresses physicists, chemists, material scientists and electrical engineers who are engaged in the research and practical applications of such materials. The conference is the 20th in a series that, starting from now, is held every two years and is fully sponsored by the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS).

Conference Topics

Basic Properties and Fundamental Studies: Dielectric properties, electrical conduction, charge transport, space charge effects, optical properties, dopant-environment interactions and spectroscopy, photoconductivity, photoionization, Kerr effect.

Electrical Discharges: Pre-breakdown and breakdown phenomena, streamers, partial discharges, creeping discharge, streaming electrification.

Electro-hydrodynamics: Electro-hydrodynamics phenomena and their application, fluid mechanics, electrothermoconvenction, electro-hydrodynamic pump.

Application and Performance of Dielectric Liquids in High Voltage Equipment: Liquid based high voltage insulation systems, ageing and degradation, HVDC application, electrostriction pump, ester liquids, nano-fluids, cryogenic liquids.

Measurements, Monitoring and Diagnostic Techniques in High Voltage Equipment: Partial discharge measurement, on-line monitoring and diagnostics, dissolved gas analysis, moisture measurement, frequency domain spectroscopy.

The forthcoming edition of ICDL will include special sessions focused on the following items:

  • synthetic and natural esters in TSO – DSO transformer applications;
  • alternative gasses on SF6 having much less greenhouse impact;
  • electrodynamics in emerging applications.

ICDL had previously been held in a number of countries across the globe, which are listed below.
