[HV issues on present projects]   [2011 Plans]   [Nitrogen Dielectric Database]

FY 2011 Plans

  • Readiness Reviews:
    • Plan a 4th round of readiness reviews in 2011 of each FCL project as they complete detailed design, fabrication and begin off-grid and on-grid testing
    • Conceptual design review for the fault current limiting, superconducting transformer project is planned in early 2011.
    • “Lessons-learned” reviews are planned as these projects finish their in-grid demonstration periods.
  • In 2011 the web-site will be upgraded further
    • Lessons-learned from prior projects
    • General design guidance on high voltage, vacuum, etc.
