Hydrogenerator Maintenance Course – Toronto, Canada

August 22-24, 2023 Iris Power, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

$1730.00 USD

About the Course

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.


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

He obtained a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering-Electrical Power Engineering degree from the University of Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. Mladen is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario,  Canada and CSA Technical Subcommittee on Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use. Mladen is a Fellow member of IEEE and contributed to creation of many IEEE Standards.  He was one of co-authors of Handbook of Electrical Motors published in 2004 and has co-authored and presented more than 100 technical papers at various international conferences. He was principal investigator for EPRI Field Guide: Generator Electrical Testing and convenor of CIGRE Working Group Guideline on Testing of Turbo and Hydro Generators. Mladen created and delivered various Technical training courses on testing and monitoring of high voltage rotating machines.

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”.
