The NEMA Industrial Systems Division will give an overview of electrical insulation during a short course at the IEEE Electrical Insulation Conference on June 19 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
This course will provide an overview of some of the essential types of insulation used in electrical and transformer machines, including resins and varnishes, flexible insulations, thermoset laminate solid
This course will be of interest to anyone responsible for or wanting to know more about available insulation materials for electrical equipment. It will benefit those responsible for selecting insulation materials, including design engineers and quality personnel. Students and young engineers will also benefit from this thorough introduction to insulating material for electrical equipment.
