What added value for end-users does the product hold?
• higher quality
• Better technical characteristics
• Other …Ce valoare adăugată asigură produsul pentru consumatorii finali?
o calitate mai ridicată
caracteristici tehnice mai bune
Altele
The added value of theoretical and experimental research for end users is the following:

- perform an experimental study combined with a numerical simulation because the experiment is expensive and not so flexible regarding the simulation of all types of limit conditions of earthquakes;

- the numerical simulation of the seism is made using FEM and ANSYS program which permit to perform a spectrum analysis on the FEM model of the circuit breaker;

- this FEM model can be used to optimize the actual resistance structure of the high-voltage circuit breaker in order to achieve a better resistance during earthquakes;

- the optimized structure of SF6 circuit breaker can be used in high power centrals for a higher safety during earthquakes.

Sales promotion aims clear and concise goals of practical implementation of such research.

The method of combining advertising with sales promotion could also ensure customer loyalty.
During research assimilation stage it is required to send messages to disseminate the results to inform potential buyers.
In the expansion phase, sales promotion is required.
