Power quality - research
High voltage transients in the electrical network damage machines and electronics. Human cells are less robust than electronics, therefore we have studied health effects of voltage transients. We have been lately collaborating with Russian researchers in this research area.

An observation: There is a lot of discussion about mold and 'mold houses'. Perhaps also voltage transients should be measured when mold is suspected? Symptoms caused by mold and voltage transients are a bit similar. Additionally, artificial electromagnetic fields make mold and bacteria grow faster.
We are glad to collaborate in this research and measurement area.
