High voltage measurement is a process that measures the voltage of an electric power system. It is used to measure and control the Voltage in an electric power system and protect against overvoltage.

What Is High Voltage?
High Voltage is a state that occurs when the Voltage applied across an electrical conductor exceeds the dielectric strength of the material. High Voltage is the voltage of an electric power system, usually in the range of 100 kilovolts to 1,000 kilovolts.
High Voltage Measurement
High voltage measurement is measuring the difference in voltage between two points. The voltage difference is calculated by using a voltmeter. A voltmeter has an input and an output.
The information is connected to the point with higher Voltage, while the work is connected to the point with lower Voltage. The voltmeter then displays the difference in volts or amps between these two points.
Direct Measurement Of High Voltage & Currents
Direct measurement is a process of measuring Voltage and current without any conversion. Direct measurement is used in high-voltage, power, and instrumentation engineering.
Explicit measurements are often used to measure electric power, the electric field strength of an electromagnetic wave, or the magnetic flux density.
Direct measurement is also used for measuring alternating currents (AC) in power systems. A particular type of ammeter called a “synchroscope” can measure the current in AC systems.
