National Electric Energy Testing, Research & Applications Center
Welcome to NEETRAC
Finding Solutions Through Collaboration

Welcome to NEETRAC!  We are a self supporting, membership based center within the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech. Our center is uniquely positioned to provide a wide array of analytical, engineering, research and testing services to help improve electric grid reliability and efficiency. We have extensive electrical and mechanical research and testing facilities located just south of Atlanta, near the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. We also offer high power testing services at the NEETRAC Nicholas J. Conrad Laboratory (NJCL) in Chicago, IL.

Our focus is Electric Energy Delivery. We work with our Members and others to help the electric utility industry solve problems associated with the complex task of transmitting and distributing electricity to homes, businesses and industry.

The field of electric energy is faced with changing regulations, emerging technologies, and the approaching integration of utility services. As these changes take place, electric utilities, equipment manufacturers, and related industries are faced with imperatives to allocate resources cost-effectively, to develop and deploy new technologies, and to recruit and retain educated talent to lead them through these changes. NEETRAC works closely with our Members to help them meet these new challenges.

NEETRAC is uniquely positioned to provide a wide array of analytical, engineering, research and testing support. We work with our Members and the significant technological resources of Georgia Tech on both collaborative and proprietary projects. Please explore our web site to learn more about what we do.

Sincerely,

Rick Hartlein, NEETRAC Director
