Customer Service Electric Technical Support Certification Tests

Introduction to Our Certification Test Services

KEPCO Research Institute was first established as the Electricity Test Facility of KEPCO in 1961, when the history of our growth and progress began. We are dedicated customer satisfaction through our power transmission and substation equipment power distribution equipment, and field technical support for power companies. Especially since our initial qualification as a certified international test agency for chemical tests in April 2000, we have earned further qualifications for structural testing for live-scale structures and non-destructive test for the power generation equipment to enhance the reliability of the results of our studies and technical supports.

Also, since we became a certified calibration agency in June 2006, we have a proven record of successfully calibrating equipment of our own and our clients. In March 2011, we were further certified as an international testing agency for ultra high voltage cables, firmly establishing our position as the best testing agency.

KEPCO Research Institute has been recognized as the central laboratory of a power group company due to its proven skills and technologies. With this, we provide the highest-quality technical services for each power station of KEPCO, five power generation subsidiaries, KHNP, and other organizations related to the electric power industry.

Areas of electricity tests

Due to the increases in the use of ultra high voltage power cables, KEPCO Research Institute completed its construction of a world class underground cable testing ground in June 2010 and achieved the certification as a certified international testing agency from KOLAS. Since then, we have been providing certification test services for newly developed cable products and cable products for export for domestic manufacturers. And, with an MOU with KEMA, a world class certification agency, we expected to play the role of the hub for certification test for power cables in South-East Asia in the future.

Fields of certification: Ultra high voltage cables and accessories Target samples: Extrusion shielding cables of 500kV, OF cables, and DC cables of 350kV or lower Certified items: Electric type tests and long-term conduction test (PQ) for ultra high voltage cable
