Dielectric Materials for Generators and Large Motors

Share

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.

Biography:

Dr. Nancy Frost is a Dielectrics Engineer with dual roles as President of Frosty’s Zap
Lab, LLC, her dielectric materials R&D testing laboratory, and with Gerome
Technologies as a Materials Engineer. She is focused on investigating aging mechanisms
of dielectrics, and has given over 100 presentations and courses over the last two decades.
Dr. Frost has experienced the electrical insulation business from the points of view of
vendors, customers, utilities and manufacturers. She has had the unique opportunity to
see many insulation system designs and manufacturing styles, as well as a variety of
aging techniques.
