On 14 November 2020, the fourth airplay of the talk show ‘50 Questions to a power engineer’ premiered with participation of CEO of Zavod Izolyator LLC, Head of CIGRE National Study Committee D1, Professor of the National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’ Dr. Alexander Slavinsky as the guest star.
National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’ (MPEI) trains the Bachelors, Masters and Specialists (Engineers) in 15 directions and 73 specialties.
MPEI is the one from the largest technical universities of Russia. It provides the specialist’s training and scientific research in the field of energetic, electrical engineering, radio electronics, computer engineering.
MPEI has the modern educational buildings, the academic and scientific laboratories, the students’ hostels, the powerful experimental facilities, a pilot-plant, an academic-research heat and power plant, an university technical park.
The ‘50 Questions to a power engineer’ is a video project of the Institute of Electrical Power Engineering (IEPE), which is a part of MPEI, where students ask thematic questions to recognized industry experts. In turn, the guests of the project get acquainted with those who in the future can become the backbone of the power industry.
The filming of the program was carried out in the Izolyator classroom, which opened at MPEI in 2019.

The history of the development of the Russian electric power industry is inextricably linked with the Izolyator plant, which was founded in 1896 and became one of the basic enterprises for the implementation of the GOELRO plan in terms of the production of insulators and electrical insulating materials.
Today, the company is a world leader in the development and production of high-voltage bushings of 20 to 1200 kV voltages. For 25 years, the Izolyator plant has been headed by Alexander Slavinsky.
