FKH is repeatedly commissioned to clarify the causes of damage and the mechanisms involved in damage progression. Treatment of the problems raised is intended to prevent damage in the future, and also to answer questions relating to insurance.
In this field, FKH has the advantage of its neutral status as an association that includes members from universities and colleges, electricity providers and industry. FKH has a workshop where faulty system components can be dismantled and also a laboratory for insulating materials. Certain investigations are carried out in specialised external laboratories.
