Dielectric Materials for Generators and Large Motors
Friday, October 29, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The focus of this presentation is the fundamental aspects of electrical insulation materials, specifically for rotating equipment – generators and large motors. This talk will cover basic components of an insulation system, material selection criteria, review of intrinsic properties as well as aging parameters. Major test methodologies and standards used in selecting and qualifying insulation systems will be discussed. It is intended that this presentation help the audience to understand the critical working aspects of electrical insulation materials. The “why” of dielectrics for their specific applications. This knowledge can aid in maintenance decision processes, equipment repair decisions, as well as educate those in the industry understand the tradeoffs in the dielectric materials selection process.
