201. INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT FOR EXTREME ELECTRICAL METROLOGY (Развој на инфраструктура за екстремна електрична метрологија)
In the paper analysis findings of the metrological infrastructure for testing and calibration in the area of extreme electrical quantities: very small and very high direct and alternating currents, very small and very high electrical resistances, very high frequencies of electrical signals, as well as electrical inductance and electrical capacitance, are presented. The analysis at the national, regional and international level is conducted within the framework of the scientific research project "Development and Upgrade of Laboratory Resources for Research and Introduction of New Analytical Methods in Electrical Metrology", financed by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of North Macedonia. The needs for measurement, testing and calibration are identified, both for the economy and for enhancement of the laboratory research capacities. The identified gap in the technical readiness (equipment and facilities) of the national laboratories in relation to the international reference laboratories in the field of testing and calibration for extreme electrical quantities is bridged by enhancing the capacities of the Laboratory for Electrical Measurements (LEM) at the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies, accredited calibration laboratory in compliance with MKS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018, with the objective of development and validation of new calibration and test methods, and expansion of the scope of LEM's accreditation in the areas of measurement, testing and calibration in the field of extreme electrical quantities.
