GE Research, Prolec GE and Cooperative Energy Partner to Install the World’s First Flexible Power Transformer

GE Research and Prolec GE are partnering with Cooperative Energy to install the world’s first flexible power transformer, designed to be a one-size-fits-all solution to transformer outages and to provide energy providers with more opportunities to leverage renewable energy sources. The flexible transformer is a potential solution to help with the country’s aging electricity grid. Due to a growing number of severe weather events that have the potential of damaging power systems, the flexible transformer provides a uniform solution that can cut down on construction wait times by functioning as a back-up solution when systems are down.
