High voltage and metrology  
  LCOE High Voltage and Metrology activities are performed in the High Voltage Technological Centre (CTAT), that is a support tool for Industry and R&D&i in the electrical engineering area.

Their structure, staff, facilities as well as their prestige, accreditations and awards are an international reference in High Voltage and Metrology Areas.

Some of the services provide by this Laboratory are tests in their own facilities, "on site" tests, metrology and R&D&i.
High Voltage Tests  
  High voltage tests (dielectric tests, tests on products and materials and current impulses) are performed in Tecnogetafe new facilities, that include two high voltage shielded buildings and an air-conditioned chamber.
Power and short-circuit tests  
  Power tests, for which LCOE has ENAC accreditation according to UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 Standard, are conducted in the High Voltage Laboratory (HPL) in Vizcaya.
High Voltage Calibrations  
  LCOE High Voltage Calibration Laboratory, accredited by ENAC according to UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 Standard, is the holder of the Spanish high voltage patterns. Its international recognition, as a Metrology Institute, allows it to issue BIPM Certificates to spread the traceability of high voltage direct current magnitudes, high voltage alternating currents and high voltage impulses. LCOE has been recognized by the Administration to verify electric measures for power transformers and to issue verification certificates.
Low Voltage, Time and Frequency and Optics calibrations  
  LCOE is the only Spanish Laboratory that has ENAC accreditation to calibrate different areas such as flickers, according to UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 Standard.
On site calibrations and verifications  
  LCOE can perform calibration tests for independent tests laboratories, manufacturers and high voltage power transformers located in electric substations because it has portable pattern equipment mounted in vans and trucks.
On line and off line Insulation diagnosis  
  LCOE has different portable tests equipments, some of them designed and developed by LCOE, to perform on site tests in high voltage equipment. Partial discharges measurement is used to perform insulation tests.

Measurements are conducted in tests previous to the put into service of the equipments (off-line techniques) and during their performance (on-line techniques).

R&D&i Activities, studies and projects  
  LCOE performs transient studies in high voltage electric systems, specially on high voltage insulated cables connected to GIS and high voltage aerial devices.
