Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Lukas Graber received a Master of Electrical Engineering degree in 2002 from ETH, Zurich. From 2002 until 2004 he was with Technocon AG, Basel/Zurich, designing a 1200 kW frequency converter for a gearless wind turbine. From 2004 until 2009 he was an assistant and a Ph.D. student with ETH Zurich. His research topics includedof SF6 leakage monitoring on high voltage Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS). He is currently leading in the CAPS High Voltage Laboratory.
