DHS S&T Releases Final Recovery Transformer Report

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) today announced the completion of its Recovery Transformer (RecX) program and published a final report that contains lessons learned, evaluations, and considerations for a spare transformer strategy to support our nation's electric grid.

RecX is a mobile spare extra high voltage (EHV) transformer designed to be rapidly deployed in the event of a transformer failure. Development of the prototype RecX was completed in 2011by the manufacturer ABB and the Electric Power Research Institute. The RecX was successfully field tested in CenterPoint Energy's grid in March 2012. The field test demonstrated RecX's rapid deployment speed by reducing the time needed to transport, install, and energize from the typical 8-12 weeks to less than six days.
