Tau Group's R&D Team Publishes Study on Thermal Aging's Impact on Electrical Performance

The research and development team at Tau Group recently published a study examining the impact of thermal aging on the electrical performance of wire coated with PFA and PAI. The study, which was published in IEEE Xplore, offers insights into the behavior of these essential components under varying environmental conditions.  


The study examines the intricate interplay between thermal aging and electrical performance, providing critical data on the behavior of PFA and PAI coated wire over time. By analyzing the effects of thermal aging in controlled environments such as air, oil, and saltwater, the study provides actionable insights for industry professionals seeking to optimize electrical systems' reliability and performance.  


"This study represents a significant advance in our understanding of the complexities of thermal aging and its effects on dielectric properties," states Enrico Cepparrone, R&D Product Manager at Tau Group. "It is of paramount importance to gain an understanding of how these coatings respond to thermal stress in order to ensure the longevity and efficiency of electrical systems."  


The insulation of stator winding wires plays a pivotal role in ensuring the reliable and long-lasting operation of electric motors. In light of the ever-increasing demand for product lifetime assurance of electrical components, Tau Group reaffirms its unwavering commitment to continuous research and its dedication to advancing technology to meet the market's demand.
