ITU Fuat Kulunk High Voltage Laboratory, located in Gumussuyu, Istanbul, is a high voltage laboratory that belongs to Istanbul Technical University. It is the first and largest high voltage laboratory in Turkey and is one of the largests of Europe. The Laboratory consists of three main blocks. It was founded by Prof. Dr. Franz Doppler in 1938 and reorganized by Prof. Dr. Fuat Kulunk, who is also the first dean of school of electrical and electronics engineering, in 1945.
