Abstract : The Idaho National Engineering Laboratory and the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory (NCEL) participated in an advanced transformer demonstration and validation program. The key objectives of the Advanced Transformer Demonstration and Validation Project were to verify the operational characteristics of advanced transformer technologies, determine their applicability to Navy use, and provide NCEL with lessons learned in the installation of these transformers at an active Navy base. Ten new transformers were installed on the Naval Air Station (NAS), North Island, CA. These special advanced technology units replaced polychlorinated biphenyl-filled units in and around buildings on NAS, North Island. The new transformers included cast coil, amorphous core, and vacuum pressure impregnated units. This report summarizes the experiences gained during the NAS, North Island advanced transformer demonstration and validation project.
