dr.ir (P.H.F.) Peter Morshuis

In 2012, dr.ir (P.H.F.) Peter Morshuis started Solid Dielectric Solutions.

Solid Dielectric Solutions is focusing on training/education and consultancy in the field of dielectrics and electrical insulation.

As independent consultant he provides in-company training for those involved in the design, construction and testing of DC and AC high voltage components and dielectrics subjected to high electric stress.

Morshuis was connected to the TU Delft department DC Systems Energy Conversion Storage.

Morshuis interests

His main expertise and research interests lie with high voltage direct current materials and components like

  • nanofluids
  • nanocomposites
  • HVDC insulation systems
  • SF6-free GIS
  • electro-active polymers

Next to providing training, Morshuis assists in developing new dielectric and high voltage monitoring systems, and applications, from design to type test, identifying and addressing the challenges of making new dielectric designs.

The company’s portfolio consists projects with manufacturers and utilities all over the world, i.e. from the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Italy, Greece, Germany, and South Korea.

EEE DEIS Summer School

Finally, in 2015 Morshuis started the IEEE DEIS Summer School series in Bertinoro, Italy: a new way of motivating and challenging PhD students in the field of dielectrics and electrical insulation.

In 2016, the Summer School was organized in Xi’an, China and in 2017 the third Summer School will most probably be organized in Korea/Japan.
