STRI completes unique test for Nalcor Energy, Canada
In June 2014, STRI completed a challenging and complex pollution/ice performance test for Nalcor Energy, Canada. In the work done by Nalcor Energy to ensure that the preliminary selected insulation is correctly designed, STRI was asked to estimate the pollution performance (required length) of insulators using “generic” pollution performance curves derived from primary literature in the STRI-developed specialized Insulator Selection Tool (IST) software. Based on this work and other investigations Nalcor Energy has decided to use DC glass cap-and-pin insulators for the new design. Read more...
