NanocompEIM Phase II - Nanocomposite Advanced Electrical Insulation Systems for Enhanced HVAC and HVDC Energy Network

Nanomaterials and Dielectrics, Solid dielectrics

This project is focused on developing epoxy nano/micro composites which can be used in electrical insulation systems. The objectives include: 1) optimising functionalised and reactive nanofillers to meet specified applications in insulating components. 2) manufacturing & testing a number of large components (industry scale) to verify their performance, 3) exploitation and dissemination, including value-chain analysis and the development of strategic partnering and licensing strategies to facilitate broader use of the IP produced in the project.

It aims to reduce cost and CO2 emission, and improve system reliability/availability.
