    This paper will examine some of the changes that have occurred in epoxy resins and their chemistry and will explore the effect of these changes on electrical insulation. The intent is to present the chemistry in a fashion that will aid insulation designers in compiling their systems and manufacturing processes and will provide enough understanding that some direction can suggest itself to those ch...

    Today, the insulation systems designer is constantly challenged to develop/qualify new advanced systems or to modify existing systems to meet growing customer requirements. The following article is intended to be an informative document listing many of the possible insulation tests used today and identifying some of the current thinking surrounding each of these tests. The key to the future will b... View full abstract»

    Stress grading on high voltage motor and generator stator windings is becoming more important as the electrical stress in the ground insulation is increased. While there are a variety of possible ways to relieve surface stress, non-linear resistive tapes have been almost universally adopted because of their simplicity and efficiency. However, selection and quality control on these materials has be... View full abstract»

    Medium voltage (2300V to 4160V) motor stator insulation has been designed to withstand voltage surges from circuit breaker operation for many decades. It is probable that the surges created by ASDs will not pose a threat to properly designed and manufactured insulation. However, as ASDs become more popular in the higher voltage ranges, we will have to watch carefully to ensure that insulation prob... View full abstract»

    The Golden Omega Award is presented at each EEIC exposition. The recipient is an outstanding person of science, engineering, education, or industry who has made important contributions to technical progress, often related to the electrical/electronics field. The award has been presented since 1958. The Golden Omega Award itself is in the form of a large trophy. Its phonetic and visual resemblance ... View full abstract»
