Electricity and Magnetism Laboratory

Published by: Kamila Szulc

Tasks:

Maintenance and development of standards and measurement facilities of electric and magnetic  quantities.
Transfer of electric and magnetic quantities measures units ma- intaining the traceability by performing calibrations of measure- ment equipment for interested entities (e.g. regional administra- tion of measures, measuring laboratories,  industry).
Conformity assessment tests of electric energy  meters,
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) tests for conformity assess- ment and type approval of measurement equipment being sub- ject to legal metrology  control.
Research and development work related to electrical  metrology,
Development and implementation of innovative measurement methods for particular electric and magnetic   quantities.
Organization and leading interlaboratory comparisons and par- ticipation  in  international comparisons.

Services:

•Electrical Quantities Standards Section – performs calibrations of:
–DC voltage sources,
–DC resistance standards: fixed resistor, resistance box,
–precision  thermometer,
–DC resistance meters

•Low Frequency Electrical Quantities Section – performs calibra- tions of:
–calibrators, reference multimeters and digitals  meters,
–thermal voltage and current converters for TVC, TTC and AC/DC transfers,
–capacitors, induction coils, AC resistors,
–devices for impedance measurements e.g. the RLC meters and bridges,  impedance analyzers.

•Electrical Power Engineering Measurements Section – performs calibrations of:
–AC electrical power and energy meters, single- and three phase,
–AC electrical power and energy   calibrators,
–instrument transformers,
–burdens for instrument  transformers,
–bridges for calibration of instrument  transformers,
–AC high voltage meters.

Furthermore, the section performs tests of meters of active electric energy of alternating current for conformity assessment within the noti- fied body (JN 1440) for compliance with MID requirements.
Section also issues opinions on documentation attached to applica- tions for the verification of electricity meters in the aspects of technical equipment,  measurement  procedures  and  uncertainty calculations.

•Microwaves, Electromagnetic Field and Electromagnetic Compa- tibility Section – performs calibrations  of:
–high frequency (hf) power meters,
–hf power sensors,
–hf voltmeters,
–hf attenuators,
–hf  measuring receivers,
–passive elements in the scope of scattering   parameters,
–constant and alternating magnetic field strength meters (probes),
–electric field strength meters  (probes),
–permanent magnets.

Furthermore, the section performs electromagnetic compatibility tests for conformity assessments and type approvals of measurement equipment being subject to legal metrology    control.
