The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has announced that it will hold a Twitter chat about the Rapid Recovery Transformer (RecX) project, which attempts to reduce the recovery time for transformer outages.
The event is scheduled for June 27 from 1:00-2:00 pm (EDT ). To join the Twitter Chat, participants are invited to follow @DHSSciTech and submit questions or comments using the #STTechTalk
The RecX project is developing a prototype RecX to enable recovery within days instead of months or years. Industry partners are the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), ABB and CenterPoint Energy. A first prototype was demonstrated in March 2012.
