Advanced Generators/Alternators - 3 Part Webinar

Instructor: Steve Evans - ComAp

Dates: September 24, 29 & October 1

Course Description:

Understanding generator systems begins with understanding the alternator, commonly called the generator. This module presents the construction of the generator and its subsystems, operational theory and limitations and precautions required to keep it operating safely. The electro-mechanical components of the excitation system will be covered along with advantages and disadvantages of various excitation methods. Winding pitch will be discussed along with its importance to the system. The student will learn how to easily calculate the maximum short circuit available from a generator and its importance. We will cover possible consequences of power system faults and how to develop a maintenance and prevention plan. (3 Hrs)
