Georgia Institute of Technology Project Description


U.S. Department of Energy


The National Electric Energy Testing, Research, and Applications Center (NEETRAC) of the Georgia Institute of Technology is working with its 35 member companies and other utilities to deliver training for line crews and engineers. NEETRAC scientists and engineers will develop and conduct the training. Line crews will learn how to install new technology connector products through classroom lectures and discussions that use NEETRAC failure investigation studies and hand-on practicum where students will install various accessories. Engineers will learn about connector theory, how to specify connectors, and how to create quality systems that ensure reliability of field installations.
