NYPA receives award for transformer bushings research
USA, New York: The New York Power Authority (NYPA), the U.S. largest state public power organization, has received an Electric Power Research Institute Technology Transfer Award for research that sheds new light on the failure of transformer bushings.
The awarded research provides insight into the failure modes and degradation mechanisms of power transformer bushings, NYPA said in a statement.
NYPA developed forensic testing procedures, failure modes and degradation mechanisms, and an understanding of the effects of thermal stresses on the insulation system of power transformer bushings, according to the statement.
The receivers of the award for this work are Alan Ettlinger, NYPA director of research, technology development and innovation; and Ramadan Elmoudi, research and technology development engineer.
