During his 12 years with the Research Division of Ontario Hydro, Steve conducted research in the areas of solid dielectrics, thermal cable design, and SF6-insulated systems. He was project leader of the team which developed the EPRI Thermal Property Analyzer (TPA), the first instrument to be licensed by EPRI. In the area of SF6-insulated systems, he pioneered the study of fast transients, and statistical modeling of disconnector operation. Much of this work was carried out in cooperation with the major manufacturers including Alsthom, ASEA, Brown-Boveri, and Siemens all of which were subcontractors under his direction during an EPRI-sponsored project to improve the reliability of solid dielectric spacers for GIS. Steve was elected a Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to GIS technology. At Underground Systems, Inc., Steve designed the high temperature superconducting power cable now under EPRI-sponsored development by Pirelli and American Superconductor. He also invented a new cable termination design which has been fully qualified and which will soon be introduced commercially.
Steve is author of 80 technical publications, a Contributing Editor to Electrical Insulation Magazine, and a voting member of the IEEE Substations Committee. Steve has consulted for the ITAIPU Hydro Electric Project in Brazil, FURNAS (Rio de Janeiro), and numerous US utilities.
Steve is presently Director of Electrical Insulation Research Center (EIRC) and a Research Professor at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT.
