The course focuses on hydro-electric generators. Although much of the discussion relates to synchronous machines rated greater than 10MVA and 6.9kV the principles apply equally to generators of all sizes down to 4kV. Discussion will concentrate on stators (frames, windings and laminated cores), rotors (windings, rims and spiders), as well as brackets, bearings and cooling. The course is presented from an end user perspective, rather than that of a machine designer.
Topics covered in this course include:
Earl Goodeve has over 30 years of experience in the maintenance and testing of generator windings. Prior to joining Iris in 1993, Earl worked 25 years for Ontario Hydro the last 14 of which in the Hydraulic Stations Department, a central group responsible for the testing and maintenance of Ontario Hydro’s 250 hydro units.
Vicki Warren, Senior Product Engineer, Iris Power LP. Ms. Warren is an Electrical Engineer with extensive experience in testing and maintenance of generator windings. Prior to joining Iris in 1996, she worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for 13 years. While with the Corps she was responsible for the testing and maintenance of hydrogenerator windings, switch-gear, transformers, protection and control devices, development of SCADA software, and the installation of local area net-works.
