Learning Objectives

  • Name the basic parts of a generator and describe the function of each in inducing voltage.
  • Describe the primary difference between a single-phase generator and a three-phase generator.
  • Name two factors that determine the frequency of the current produced by a generator.
  • Explain why the frequency of a generator's output must be controlled.
  • Explain the function of the exciter in a generator.
  • Name the parts of a direct current (DC) exciter and the parts of a brushless exciter and describe their functions.
  • Explain why a large generator is typically cooled with hydrogen instead of air.
  • Explain the function of an oil seal in a hydrogen-cooled generator.
  • Describe how hydrogen is supplied to a generator cooling system.
  • Explain the purpose of each of the following components in a hydrogen generator cooling system: purity analyzer, core monitor, hydrogen dryer, and liquid detector.
  • Explain how carbon dioxide and air are used to purge a generator cooling system.
  • Describe the flow of water in a typical stator cooling system.
  • Describe the function of each of the following components in a typical stator cooling system: temperature control valve, pressure control valve, and demineralizer.

Crashes a lot on my computer. There are some mistakes, like "micropresser" instead of "microprocess

“Crashes a lot on my computer. There are some mistakes, like "micropresser" instead of "microprocessor" and some of the graphics in the exciter section are confounded. Still, it's decent.”
