An experimental generator test setup for hydropower research and model verification
2011 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
This licentiate thesis describes the design and construction of a synchronous generator test setup. Some initial measurements are also presented. A twelve pole synchronous generator has been built from a synchronous motor. Laminated poles, parallel stator circuits and a configurable damper winding were installed to adapt the machine to hydropower generator research. Equipment for various electrical and mechanical measurements has been installed. Results from some of the inital measurements are presented in the thesis. One experiment where the generator was connected to the grid investigated the importance of damper winding connections betweeen adjacent poles to damp rotor oscillations. Another study showed that parallel circuits in the stator winding under the right circumstances can contribute significantly to the reduction of eccentricity forces.
