  • Spread of flame testing of glass - backsheet c-Si solar modules: Degradation progression and effect of module laminate materials

    Recent changes to the flammability test set in UL 1703 have raised the opportunity for using glass - backsheet c-Si modules on rooftop installations. For this module type, passing the Spread of Flame test can be problematic. This paper describes work undertaken to identify the progression of degradation in the module during the course of the test, and to understand which variables in module design can affect the process. Small and full size modules were prepared with different laminate material combinations, and these were flame tested while recording video, thermocouple and thermal imaging data. From these data sets, we have developed a physical model of events leading to failure, with critical steps consisting of A) stress generation in the glass due to thermal expansion B) glass cracking, and C) escape of volatiles through glass cracks followed by ignition above the glass and into the laminate. Glass cracking has been found to be the single most important factor in spread of flame testing. Encapsulant degree of cure is also important in determining flame performance.

  • IEEE 1202 flame testing of cables for use in cable tray

    The new IEEE 1202, IEEE Standard for Flame Testing of Cables for Use in Cable Tray in Industrial and Commercial Occupancies, is described. This flame test standard will: (1) contribute to harmonization of Canadian and US standards, most likely becoming a North American standard and eventually replacing the current UL and CSA tray cable flame tests; (2) provide more flame retardant cables for use in cable trays; and (3) address the valid criticism that not all constructions in a product line will pass the existing flame tests since only a 7/C or a 9/C 12 AWG (3.31-mm/sup 2/) construction is tested (under this new standard, there is a very high probability that all constructions will pass the flame test). Adoption of this standard may eliminate some present cable constructions from use in cable trays or at least require some redesign to comply with the flame test.<<ETX>>

  • Development and characterization of ablative materials used for rocket motors

    The major purpose of this research work was to acquire two formulations of ablative materials used for solid rocket nozzles. These advanced materials are fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites capable of protecting the structures from the exceedingly severe performing conditions. These materials should withstand very high temperatures in the order of thousands of degrees Celsius, high thrust, high friction, and impact. In this study, the composites fiber glass were obtained with a phenolic resin (PR) and modified PR by the addition of epoxy resins and phenyltrimethoxysilane for improving the ablation resistance using the hot compression molding technique. Moreover, the physical as well as chemical properties of the matrix and the composites were determined by using standard experimental methods. The comparison between modified PR and traditional PR were analyzed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and the ablative measurement on laminate specimens were tested by using oxyacetylene flame testing. The results showed that the modified PR composites significantly enhanced ablation resistance.

  • Solid cast transformers

    The author provides an overview of the available types of solid cast transformers and compares the advantages and disadvantages of solid cast transformers with those of alternatives. Specifically, a comparison between different solid cast construction techniques is made in the following areas: available techniques; high voltage coils; low voltage coils; and mechanical, electrical, thermal strength, and flame test results. Also, comparisons are made between solid cast transformers and other dry-type and liquid-filled transformers. It is concluded that solid cast transformers do not present potential environmental problems, have proven to be self-extinguishing in flammability tests, can match the basic insulation levels (BILs) of liquid- filled transformers, have higher short-circuit strength, require very little maintenance, and have a very competitive total installed cost.<<ETX>>

  • Flammability and toxicity testing of wire and cable

    Numerous entities are developing and implementing new testing requirements to measure the flame propagation characteristics of tray cables and the toxic gases generated during combustion of wire and cable. The author provides an overview of the organizations developing the tests, a general description of the test protocols, their current status, and their potential impact on the petroleum and chemical industries. It is suggested that the establishment of new flame testing criteria for tray cables may eliminate some presently permitted cable constructions. Introduction of new materials that are either more flame retardant, produce less smoke, or generate less corrosive or toxic gases will provide opportunities for new constructions and products.<<ETX>>
