PowerBridgeNY helps making greener transformers

USA, New York: PowerBridgeNY, a proof-of-concept center (POCC) program which is advised by the New York Academy of Sciences and provides early-stage investments and services to help inventors and scientists turn their high-tech, clean-energy ideas into a successful business, has helped establishment of a new company which has designed a new green transformer.

With the green technology developed within the POCC program, a new high efficiency shielded toroidal transformer has been designed by two engineers-turned-entrepreneurs as a cost-effective and clean-energy alternative to traditional transformers, reports NYAS.

Up to five prototypes of the transformer will now be manufactured to be tested according to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association standard test codes, and then pilot programs will be implemented with utility companies.
