Description

Description

A transformer's external insulation cover is an important part that has a significant influence in the transformer's security and reliability. During recent years these covers have been manufactured using traditional processes that do not incorporate much technology in the design process. However, we can use Simulation Moldflow software in a way that would enable us to optimize the process and the design of the cover, thereby achieving a suitable design that could still comply with the electrical isolation needs and mechanical and shape objectives, as well as reduce the current cost of the material and the process. In this class we'll explore how well the module correlates with real-world molded samples, we'll determine the most effective approach for using the thermoset module to optimize an electrical component, and we'll discuss any current solver limitations.

Shawn Gedman

Shawn Gedman is currently the Simulation Team Lead for the Americas at Autodesk. He's been providing support for the Autodesk Moldflow line of products since 2006, but has also had plenty of exposure to the product while obtaining his B.S. in Plastics Engineering and a minor in Business Management from Penn State Behrend. In addition to Autodesk Moldflow he has experience in blow film extrusion and was an acting supervisor for a company specializing in conventional injection molding and hot stamping. Prior to his career in plastics, he served 8 years in the US Armed Forces as a Forward Observer in a field artillery unit. During his term, he was deployed to Iraq, where he was able to add a few more pages to his book of life lessons and experiences. Shawn now lives in Pittsburgh, PA with his wife and 7 year old son.
