Power generators are the heart of mostly all electricity generating systems. Mechanically rotating a magnetic field inside a copper coil, phenomenally generates electric power.

The construction of these rotating machines has not changed too much from when they were invented, over a 100 years ago, actually closer to 200 years ago. We will discuss the different types of power generators, those being wind turbine, hydro generators, diesel and steam driven and there inner most winding designs on both stators and rotors. Are they multi turn diamond coils or roebel transpositioned single turn half bars.

Two(2) case studies will be presented:

  1. A water cooled 660Mw stator winding uprated to 700Mw.
  2. A hydro generator refurbishment project
