this increasing demand.
the primary design philosophy of power transformers has
not changed dramatically in recent decades, advances in
technology have permitted greater monitoring and control
to the end user, and these changes have increased implications
in controls design. Additionally, with improvements in
materials and processes, IEEE test standards continue
to evolve to ensure the customer receives a quality, reliable
May meeting will include a tour of the Delta Star facility,

transformers, and a brief discussion of Delta Star's plans
