The course focuses on hydro-electric generator windings. 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.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This course is directed at engineering and maintenance personnel responsible for the purchase, installation, maintenance, testing and repair of hydrogenerators.
Topics covered in this course include:
Introduction and Stator Windings
Stator Windings and Core
Stators and Rotors
Cost: $1730.00 US
Lunch and a complete set of notes will be provided
Price does not include accommodation

Nick Stranges completed his PhD in Electrical Engineering at the Power Research Laboratory at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada in 2001. He gained more than 20 years of experience in the design and development of high voltage motors at the GE Large Motors Plant in Peterborough, Canada where he was a Principal Engineer. This was followed by a few years as a hydrogenerator Design Engineer at the Andritz facilities also in Peterborough before he joined Iris Power. Nick has authored or coauthored over 35 transactions and conference papers. He has been and active member of the IEEE Standards Association and has participated in the development and revision of various standards. He served as the working group (WG) chair for the latest revision of IEEE 112, and has been a WG member of IEEE 115 and 1812. He is currently a WG member of IEEE 1665. Nick is also a Standards Council of Canada Committee member of IEC/TC2 – Rotating Machinery.
Aaron Doyle completed his Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Calgary Schulich School of Engineering in 2008 and became a recognized as a Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) by APEGA (Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta) in 2011. His specialty is vibration analysis including impact testing and modal analysis, Operating Deflection Shape (ODS) and Motion Amplification (MA) analyses, transient analysis for startups/shutdowns, dynamic balancing, as well as torsional measurement and analysis. Previously, he worked for more than 10 years with Siemens in the role of field service engineer. He is an active member of ISO/TC 108/SC 2/WG 10 “Basic techniques for vibration diagnostics”.
