This project involves the production of nanocomposite electrical insulation materials and components by establishing property and process design rules for reliable production and processing that are scalable, and to demonstrate this by the manufacture and realistic testing of a high voltage resin bushing.
This applied research project addresses the need to achieve systematic processing and production of nanocomposite electrical insulation materials for the reliable manufacture of high performance next generation High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) power transmission equipment. Major enhancements in performance and properties of key components in new HVDC electrical insulation systems are essential for long term growth of onshore and offshore HVDC systems in GB and Europe, which rely on point to point and multi terminal schemes.
