Advanced AC Generators

Course Purposes

This course is designed for those who have a need to understand most aspects of power plant generators This course addresses Theory of Generator Operation, Design Considerations, Construction, Relationships to the System, Excitation Systems, Auxiliaries, and Normal/Abnormal Operations, Protective Relaying associated with the Generator, Outage Planning, Disassembly, Inspection/Repair, and Reassembly.

Course Objectives:

By the end of this course the participant will be able to know
  •  How does a generator function?
  •  Why is it designed as it is?
  •   What happens if the generator is synchronized out-of-phase?
  •  What happened in the control room such that one would make such a large error when synchronizing?
  •   How can we avoid such an error?
  •    Just how bad (and what is) negative phase sequence currents?
  •   Corona discharge what does that mean?
  •   How do you repair fused stator punchings?
  •  What components should be high-potential tested?
  •   How can we avoid accidental injury when testing the generator?
  •  What are the probable causes of grounded fields?
  •  Why have we (recently) heard of hydrogen explosions?  How do we avoid?
