Guide for the Installation of Vertical Generators and Generator/Motors for Hydroelectric Applications
|Publication Date:||29 March 2012|
The procedures for installation described in this guide apply to all types of synchronous generators and generator/motors rated 5 MVA and above to be coupled to hydraulic turbines or hydraulic pump/turbines having vertical shafts.
Large hydraulic turbine-driven generators are shipped as components and completely assembled and installed at the site. The installation, therefore, becomes a continuation of the manufacturing process, and many of the operations involved are those that are normally performed in the factory on smaller generators. Close tolerances must be maintained in the fit and alignment of the various parts. The use of proper installation procedures is essential to achieve satisfactory operation of the unit.
