About the CERC Consortium
and Expanding Edge LLC,
its American representative
Several electrical engineering companies in the Commonwealth of Independent
States (CIS) have been developing and producing arc-quenching and shunt
reactors for industrial and residential electric grids for over ten years.
Among these, the following companies have organized themselves as the
Controllable Electric Reactor Consortium (CERC):
- Energy Electrotechnical Plant of Ramenskoe
- Zaporozhtransformator (Ukraine) ("ZTR"),
- The All-Russia Electrical Engineering Institute ("VEI"),
- VEI's Scientific & Engineering Center in Togliatti
- Controllable Electric Reactors (Russia), as leader of the Consortium.
The Consortium oversees the development, production, delivery, debugging,
and maintenance of magnetically controllable electric reactors (MCRs)
of up to 500 MVA and 1150 kV for high-power grids and substations. The
manufacturers of the MCR are ISO-9002 certified.
CERC has contracted with Expanding Edge LLC, an international
business consulting and development firm in San Anselmo, California, to
represent its interests outside the CIS and especially in the USA. Expanding
Edge's principals are Mark D. Galperin, PhD, a former Russian nuclear
physicist and Moscow business leader, and Mr. John Burnett, who has a
background as a technical writer, educator, and paralegal.
