Generators output at a voltage that ranges from hundreds of volts to 30.75 kW) units (rare) used as mechanical drives for pumps.000. 208 V between the third phase ( known as a wild leg) and neutral and 240 V between any two phase) to be available from the same supply. In a three phase system the phases are spaced equally. This allows for 240 V three phase as well as three different single phase voltages( 120 V between two of the phases and neutral . the most common speeds are 3000 r/min for 50 Hz systems. The turbine normally consists of several stage with each stages consisting of a stationary blade (or nozzle) and a rotating blade. The turbine shaft is connected to a generator. Most large nuclear sets rotate at half those speeds. The turbines used for electric power generation are most often directly coupled to their-generators . water falling through the turbine are made in a variety of sizes ranging from small 1 hp (0.

The power may already have been split into single phase at this point or it may still be three phase. compressors and other shaft driven equipment . The water may be freshly supplied or retuning condensation of the steam produced by the boiler. The turbines themselves are driven by steam generated in „Boilers‟ or „steam generators‟ as they are sometimes called. After numerous further conversions in the transmission and distribution network the power is finally transformed to the standard mains voltage (i. Steam turbines are used in all of our major coal fired power stations to drive the generators or alternators. generally using electromagnetic induction. giving a phase separation of onethird one cycle. These pumps are normally high pressure units that use suction from a condensate return system and can be of the centrifugal pump type or positive displacement type.000 kW) turbines used to generate electricity. Electrical power station use large stem turbines driving electric generators to produce most (about 86%) of the world‟s electricity. which produce electricity. Another system commonly seen in North America is to have a delta connected secondary with a center tap on one of the windings supplying the ground and neutral. 4. The task of converting the electrical energy into mechanical energy is accomplished by using a motor. Energy in the steam after it leaves the boiler is converted into rotational energy as it passes through the turbine. Stationary blades convert the potential energy of the steam into kinetic energy into forces.As the generators must rotate at constant synchronous speeds according to the frequency of the electric power system. caused by pressure drop. which produces the electrical energy. to 2. transformers: step-up” this voltage to one more suitable for transmission. Where the step-down is 3 phase. all at the same frequency but offset in time to give different phases.Boiler feed water pump A Boiler feed water pump is a specific type of pump used to pump water into a steam boiler. .Electrical generator An Electrical generator is a device that converts kinetic energy to electrical energy. . These centralized stations are of two types: fossil fuel power plants and nuclear power plants.

and liquid Level by fully partially opening or closing in response to signals received from controllers that compares a “set point” to a “process variable” whose value is provided by sensors that monitor changes in such conditions.the pump was often a positive displacement pump that had steam valves and cylinders at one end and feed water cylinders at the other end. and feed water should be devoid of dissolved gases. I f the liquid continues to drop (perhaps because the pump has failed. which increases the amount heat available for conversion to mechanical power.pressure. A Steam generating boiler requires that the circulating steam. the primary purpose of surface condenser is to condense the exhaust steam from a steam turbine to obtain maximum efficiency and also to convert the turbine exhaust steam into pure water so that it may be reused in the steam generator or boiler as boiler feed water. the pump must generate sufficient pressure to overcome the steam pressure developed by the boiler. Large industrial condensate pumps may also serve as the feed water pump. As liquid lowers to the trigger point of the first stage. The opening or closing of control valves is done by means of electrical. The solids will deposit on the heating surfaces giving rise to localized heating and tube ruptures due to overheating. . A means had to be provided. Control valves Control valves are valves used within industrial plants and elsewhere to control operating conditions such as temperature. to force the water into the boiler. Deaerator A Dearator is a device for air removal and used to remove dissolved gases (an alternate would be the use of water treatment chemicals) from boiler feed water to make it non-corrosive. 5. the second stage will be triggered. Some pumps contain a two-stage switch. particularly corrosive ones and dissolved or suspended solids. to put the initial charge of water into the boiler(before steam power was available to operate the steam-powered feed water pump). 6. Feed water pumps usually run intermittently and are controlled by a float switch or other similar level-sensing device energizing the pump when it detects a lowered liquid level in the boiler is substantially increased. or its discharge is blocked). its supply has been cut off or exhausted. the pump was often powered using a small steam engine that ran using the steam produced by the boiler. though. In this situation. hydraulic or pneumatic systems 7. This is usually accomplished through the use of a centrifugal pump. This stage may switch off the boiler equipment (preventing the boiler from running dry and overheating). Most of the heat liberated due to condensation of the exhaust steam is carried away by the cooling medium (water or air) used by the surface condenser.flow. or both. In either case. The gases will give rise to corrosion of the metal. the pump is activated. no crankshaft was required.Construction and operation Feed water pumps range in size up to many horsepower and the electric motor is usually separated from the pump body by some form of mechanical coupling. the steam pressure drop between the inlet and exhaust of the turbine is increased. A dearator typically includes a vertical domed deaeration section as the deaeration boiler feed water tank. condensate. trigger an alarm. By condensing the exhaust steam of a turbine at a pressure below atmospheric pressure. In thermal plants. of course. Steam-powered pumps Steam locomotives and the steam engines used on ships and stationary applications such as power plants also required feed water pumps.

A belt conveyor consists of two pulleys. The difference in densities between hot and cold water helps in the accumulation of the “hotter”-water/and saturated – steam into steam drum. non-superheated . Preheating the feed water reduces the irreversible involved in steam generation and therefore improves the thermodynamic efficiency of the system. feed water heaters allow the feed water to be brought up to the saturation temperature very gradually. Made from high-grade steel (probably stainless) and its working involves temperatures 390‟C and pressure well above 350psi (2. 9.005 cm3/L) 8.Under some conditions it may give to stress corrosion cracking. It is reservoir of water/steam at the top end of the water tubes in the water-tube boiler. Conveyor belts are extensively used to transport industrial and agricultural material. water level indicator and fuse plug.the level by regulating condensate flow and the pressure by regulating steam flow. The steam will re-enter the furnace in through a super heater. If operated properly. 10. Super Heater A Super heater is a device in a steam engine that heats the steam generated by the boiler again increasing its thermal energy and decreasing the likelihood that it will condense inside the engine. The pulleys are powered. This minimizes the inevitable irreversibility‟s associated with heat transfer to the working fluid (water). 11. Boiler Steam Drum Steam Drums are a regular feature of water tube boilers. and were widely adopted.[4] This reduces plant operating costs and also helps to avoid thermal shock to the boiler metal when the feed water is introduces back into the steam cycle. So that it acts as a sump for the sludge or sediments which have a tendency to the bottom. most deaerator vendors will guarantee that oxygen in the deaerated water will not exceed 7 ppb by weight (0. ores etc. Deaerator level and pressure must be controlled by adjusting control valves. In a steam power (usually modeled as a modified Ranking cycle). coal.4MPa). while the saturated water at the bottom of steam drum flows down to the mud-drum /feed water drum by down comer tubes accessories include a safety valve. such as grain. Saturated steam is drawn off the top of the drum. Super heaters increase the efficiency of the steam engine.the conveyor Belt – that rotates about them. They store the steam generated in the water tubes and act as a phase separator for the steam/water mixture. Steam which has been superheated is logically known as superheated steam. Pulverizer A pulverizer is a device for grinding coal for combustion in a furnace in a fossil fuel power plant. The separated steam is drawn out from the top section of the drum. A steam drum is used in the company of a mud-drum/feed water drum which is located at a lower level. moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. Feed water heater A Feed water heater is a power plant component used to pre-heat water delivered to a steam generating boiler. with a continuous loop of material.

Economizer lower stack temperatures which may cause condensation of acidic combustion gases and serious equipment corrosion damage if care is not taken in their design and material selection. They are a device fitted to a boiler which saves energy by using the exhaust gases from the boiler to preheat the cold water used the fill it (the feed water). The purpose of the air preheater is to recover the heat from the boiler flue gas which increases the thermal efficiency of the boiler by reducing the useful heat lost in the fuel gas. up to but not normally beyond the boiling point of the fluid. 12. salt cake collection from black liquor boilers in pump mills. The term economizer is used for other purposes as well. A common application of economizer is steam power plants is to capture the waste hit from boiler stack gases (flue gas) and transfer thus it to the boiler feed water thus lowering the needed energy input . such as those in cold fired power stations. avoiding damage to the components. Precipitator An Electrostatic precipitator (ESP) or electrostatic air cleaner is a particulate device that removes particles from a flowing gas (such As air) using the force of an induced electrostatic charge. in turn reducing the firing rates to accomplish the rated boiler output . Boiler. As a consequence. are mechanical devices intended to reduce energy consumption. ESP‟s continue to be excellent devices for control of many industrial particulate emissions. economizer are heat exchange devices that heat fluids . Modern controls minimize sparking and prevent arcing. power plant. the flue gases are also sent to the flue gas stack (or chimney) at a lower temperature allowing simplified design of the ducting and the flue gas stack. Economizers Economizer. . and heating. 13. including smoke from electricity-generating utilities (coal and oil fired). In this context they are turbines before it is pumped to the boilers. maximizing corona production. Economizers are so named because they can make use of the enthalpy and improving the boiler‟s efficiency. combustion in a boiler). and so stationary steam engines including power stations. and can easily remove fine particulate matter such as dust and smoke from the air steam. The original parallel plate-Weighted wire design (described above) has evolved as more efficient ( and robust) discharge electrode designs were developed. ventilating and air conditioning. Transformer –rectifier systems apply voltages of 50-100 Kilovolts at relatively high current densities. and catalyst collection from fluidized bed catalytic crackers from several hundred thousand ACFM in the largest coal-fired boiler application.steam is called saturated steam or wet steam. or in the UK economizer. or to perform another useful function like preheating a fluid. It also allows control over the temperature of gases leaving the stack. Air Preheater Air preheater is a general term to describe any device designed to heat air before another process (for example. are still fitted with economizer which is decedents of Green‟s original design. Modern day boilers. Electrostatic precipitators are highly efficient filtration devices. usually water. to most steam vehicles. Super heaters were applied to steam locomotives in quantity from the early 20th century. today focusing on rigid discharge electrodes to which many sharpened spikes are attached .

Once the measured is common i. Another point is the universality of the supply. This is an important part in the plant. The temperature inside the boiler is 1100 degree Celsius and its height is 18 to 40 m. The furnace has six feeder mills each .e. In this lab. The latest technology is the use of „ETHERNET‟ for control signals. 5. However.2 AUTOMATION LAB This lab deals in automating the existing equipment and feeding routes. Then the emf is induced in the circuit due to the flow of electrons. (4) RTD (RESISTANCE TEMPERATURE DETECTOR) It performs the function of thermocouple basically but the difference is of a resistance. (2) ULTRA VIOLET CENSOR This device is used in furnace and it measures the intensity of ultra violet rays there and according to the wave generated which directly indicates the temperature in the furnace. It comprises of two junctions at different temperature. Unburnt coal is removed using forced draft or induced draft fan. 5. (3) THERMOCOUPLES This device is based on SEEBACK and PELTIER effect. All the control instruments are excited by 24V supply (4-20mA) because voltage can be mathematically handled with ease therefore all control systems use voltage system for computation. the relays are also provided but they are used only for protection and interlocks. For first stage coal burners are in the front and rear of the furnace and for the second and third stage corner firing is employed. It is L shaped thermometer which is designed to reach all inaccessible places. also the measuring devices can be calibrated in the oil bath or just boiling water (for low range devices) and in small furnace (for high range devices). The modern technology or the secondary systems are coupled with (MIS) Management Information System. But this lab universally applies the pressure measuring instruments as the controlling force.5. It is made up of mild steel. the old technology dealt with only (DAS) Data Acquisition System and came to be known as primary systems.3 PYROMETER LAB (1) LIQUID IN GLASS THERMOMETER Mercury in the glass thermometer boils at 340 degree Celsius which limits the range of temperature that can be measured.4 FURNACE SAFETY AND SUPERVISORY SYSTEM LAB This lab has the responsibility of starting fire in the furnace to enable the burning of coal. For firing the furnace a 10 KV spark plug is operated for ten seconds over a spray of diesel fuel and pre-heater air along each of the feeder-mills. the laws of electronic state that it can be any where between 12V and 35V in the plant. An ultra violet sensor is employed in furnace to measure the intensity of ultra violet rays inside the furnace and according to it a signal in the same order of same mV is generated which directly indicates the temperature of the furnace. pressure the control circuits can easily be designed with single chips having multiple applications. In this due to the change in the resistance the temperature difference is measured. Earlier.

Temperature Measurement The most important parameter in thermal power plant is temperature and its measurement plays a vital role in safe operation of the plant. It extracts the magnetic portion.Controlling device may be designed incorporating in its construction the principle that some metals expand more than others for the same temperature range. The change may be observed with substance itself or in a subsidiary system in thermodynamic equilibrium. integrated circuits. Rise of temperature in a substance is due to the resultant increase in molecular activity of the substance on application of heat. This Chapter Seeks to provide a basic understanding of the prevalent instruments used for measuring the above parameters. to prevent creation of pressure different with in the furnace. It houses various types of analytical instruments like oscilloscopes. cards auto analyzers etc.5 ELECTRONICS LAB This lab undertakes the calibration and testing of various cards. Auto analyzer purifies the sample before it is sent to electrodes. Pressure. which is called testing body and the system itself is called the hot body. 5. which threatens to blast it. It has a switching transistor connected to relay that helps in alerting the UCB. In first stage indirect firing is employed that is feeder mills are not fed directly from coal but are fed from three feeders but are fed from pulverized coalbunkers. Such a device is the thermostat used with water heaters (Refer . Therefore there exists some property of the substance.6 ANNUNCIATIN CARDS They are used to keep any parameter like temperature etc. Control and Instrumentation Control and Instrumentation Measuring Instrumentsments In any process the philosophy of instrumentation should provide a comprehensive intelligence feed back on the important parameters viz.

71)  Spiral type More sensitive and used where compactness is necessary  Helical Type Most sensitive and compact. "Float Operated Dial" is used for small tanks and congested areas.77) Dewrance Critical Pressure Gauge Measurement of Level Direct Methods 'Sight Glass' is used for local indication on closed or open vessels. To extend the range of mercury in glass thermometer beyond this point the top end of a thermometer bore opens into a bulb which is many times larger in capacity than the bore.The mercury will occupy a greater fraction of the volume of the container than it will at a low temperature. Types of Hg in Steel Thermometers are:  Bourdon Tube Most common and simplest type (Refer Fig. Valves are provided for isolation and blow down. Under normal atmospheric conditions mercury normally boils at a temperature of (347°C). This fact is obvious by the delicate nature of glass also the position of the measuring element is not always the best position to read the result. . "Float with Gauge Post" is normally used to local indication on closed or open vessels. does not lend itself to all industrial practices. A sight glass is a tube of toughened glass connected at both ends through packed unions and vessel. This bulb plus the bore above the mercury. is then filled with nitrogen or carbon dioxide gas at a sufficiently high pressure to prevent boiling at the highest temperature to which the thermometer may be used. thus eliminating backlash and lost motion? Linkages. Pointer may be mounted direct on end of helix Which rotates. (Refer Fig No. which only allow the pointer to operate over a selected range of pressure to either side of the normal steam pressure. The float arm is connected to a quadrant and pinion which rotates the pointer over a scale. The liquid level will be the same as that in the vessel. Mercury in Steel the range of liquid in glass thermometers although quite large.

This pressure is transmitted via a capillary tube to an indicator or recorder incorporating a pressure Measuring element. The manometer liquid must not mix with the liquid in the vessel. In some cases the . The working principle is the same as that of a manometer one limp of a U-tube is connected to the tank. In this type. the static head must be allowed in the design of the manometer. Sealed Capsule Type The application and principle is the same as for the diaphragm box. a capsule filled with an inert gas under a slight pressure is exposed to the pressure due to the head of liquid and is connected by a capillary to an indicator.Bourden Pressure Gauge a Bourdon pressure gauge calibrated in any fact head is often connected to a tank at or near the datum level. the other being open to atmosphere. A pressure change created by the movement of a diaphragm is proportional to a change in liquid level above the diaphragm. 'Diaphragm Type' is used for remote level indication in open tanks or docks etc.the liquid pressure on the diaphragm increases and the air inside is compressed. and where the manometer is at a different level to the vessel. "Mercury Manometer" is used for remote indication of liquid level. This consists of a cylindrical box with a rubber or plastic diaphragm across its open end as the level increases .

i. There are two groups of measuring devices: Positive. 'Quantity of flow' is the quantity of fluid passing a given point in a given time.e. quantity of flow and rate of flow.capsule is fitted external to the tank and is so arranged that it can be removed whilst the tank is still full. . The pressure exerted inside an open ended tube below the surface of a liquid is proportional to the depth of the liquid The Measurement of Flow Two principle measurements are made by flow meters viz. The inferential type is the most widely used. the liquid being measured. or volume. at a reasonable distance and above or below. „Rate of flow' is the speed of. it being equal to the velocity times the cross sectional area of the flow. gallons per minute or pounds per hour. gallons or pounds. or volumetric. Inferential. a spring loaded valve automatically shutting off the tapping point. which measures the velocity of the flow and the volume passed is inferred. i. a fluid passing a given point at a given instant and is proportional to quantity passing at a given instant. which measure flow by transferring a measured quantity of fluid from the inlet to the outlet. Air Purge System This system provides the simplest means of obtaining an indication of level.e.

Helical Vane Type For larger rates of flow.. Usually of pipe sizes 3" to 10" Typical example is the Kent Torrent Meter. therefore the flume is sometimes used. Turbine Type this like the helical Vane type is a inference type of device used for large flows with the minimum of pressure drop.g. or the bottom of the notch will be a measure of the rate of flow. retaining at the top by a collar. Combination Meters this is used for widely fluctuating flows. It is only necessary to .000 gallons per hour can be measured. Flow is directed into either the main or bypass according to the quantity of flow by an automatic valve. domestic water supplies. The principle is same as that of venture except that the rate of flow is proportional to the depth of the liquid in the upstream section. containing a piston made of ebonite. turbine or fan) in the main with a small rotary meter or suitable type in a bypass. A formula relates the rate of flow to the height and is dependent upon the design of the Venturi Flumes The head loss caused by the weir flow meter is considerable and its construction is sometimes complicated. a helical vane is mounted centrally in the body of the meter. Water enters the drum from the top and leaves tangentially casings to rotate at a speed dependent upon the quantity of water passed. The helix chamber may be vertical or horizontal and is geared to a counter. Measurement of Fluid Flow through Open Channels: The Weir If a fluid is allowed to flow over a square weir of notch. This consists of a brass meter body into which is fitted a machined brass working chamber and cover. e. It consists of a local contraction in the cross section of flow through a channel in the shape of a venturi. The height of the liquid above the still of the weir. It consists of a larger meter (helical. The cross sectional area of the meter throughout is equal to the area of the inlet and outlet pipes and is commonly used on direct supply water mains. petroleum and other commercial liquids. Rotating Oscillating Piston Type This is also a positive type device and is used for measuring low and medium quantity flows. This piston acts as a moving chamber and transfers a definite volume of fluid from the inlet to the outlet for each cycle. This consists of a turbine or drum revolving in upright bearings.Measurement of Fluid Flow through Pipes: "The Rotating Impeller Type" is a positive type device which is used for medium quantity flow measurement i. It consists of Two fluted rotors mounted in a liquid tight case fluid flow and transmitted to a counter. By this means flows of 45 to 40.e.

In the metering of dirty fluids or fluids containing solids the hole is placed so that its lower edge coincides with the inside bottom of the pipe. the smaller diameters of which are connected together by a short length of parallel pipe. or downstream pressure) is measured here. (the throat. (Refer fig. 79). There are four principal types of primary elements (or restrictions) as enumerate below: Venturi. ^he magnitude of which is proportional to the square of the rate of flow and a secondary element which measures this differential pressure and translates it into terms of flow. No-79 Pressure Differential Flow meters Primary elements Bernoulli's theorem states that the quantity of fluid or gas flowing is proportional to the square root of the differential pressure. (Refer Fig. Orifice Plate This is the oldest and most common form of pressure differential device. Fig. the smallest diameter of the tube formed by this length of parallel pipe is known as the throat section and the lower of the two pressures. This is generally used for medium and high quantity fluid flow and it consists of two hollow truncated cones. This may be done by pressure tapping at the datum point or by a float in an adjacent level chamber. In its simplest form it consists of a thin metal plate with a central hold clamped between two pipe flanges.80) It is essential that the leading edge of the hole is absolutely sharp rounding or burring would have a very marked effect on the flow. .measure the depth of the upstream section which is a measure of the rate of flow. Pressure Difference Flow meters These are the most widely used type of flow meter since they are capable of measuring the flow of all industrial fluids passing through pipes. They consists of a primary element inserted in the pipeline which generates a differential pressure.

the increased use of solid forgings and improved techniques permitted an increase in generator rating to 20MW at 300rpm. The problem of guaranteeing the dynamic strength and operating stability of such a rotor is complicated by the fact that a massive non-uniform shaft subjected to a multiplicity of differential stresses must operate in oil lubricated sleeve bearings supported by a structure mounted on foundations all of which possess complex dynamic be behavior peculiar to themselves.. Generator component This Chapter deals with the two main components of the Generator viz. its frame. It revolves in most modern generators at a speed of 3. Costs of material and labour involved in manufacturing and erection must be a basic consideration. the development and installation of power plants was delayed and in order to catch up with the delay in plant installation.Development The first A. The passage of the current through the windings generates heat but the temperature must not be allowed to become so high. its winding & balancing and stator. otherwise difficulties will be experienced with insulation.were of the order of 30 to 50 MW at 3000 rpm. glass and/or asbestos molded in resin and other synthetic resins are finding wide applications. core & windings. Insulation for rotor is subjected to lower dielectric stress but must withstand high dynamic stresses and the newly developed epoxy resins. it was not long before that the high-speed generators made its impact. a large number of 30 MW and 60 MW at 3000 rpm units were constructed during the years immediately following the war. Up to the out break of second world war. To keep the temperature down. Although slow speed AC generators have been built for some time. An insulation to meet the stresses in generator slots must follow very closely the thermal expansion of the insulated conductor without cracking or any plastic deformation. Development of suitable insulating materials for large turbo-generators is one of the most important tasks and need continues watch as size and ratings of machines increase.000 revolutions per minute. In any development programme the. . Rotor The electrical rotor is the most difficult part of the generator to design. most large generator. In 1889 Sir Charles A.C. The changes in design in this period were relatively small. The present trend is the use only class "B" and higher grade materials and extensive work has gone into compositions of mica. Coupled very closely with these considerations is the restriction is size and weight imposed by transport limitations. glass and asbestos with appropriate bonding material. in 1922. During the war. Rotor. Generator concept was enunciated by Michael Faraday in 1831. Parsons developed the first AC turbo-generator. in 1939. Development contained until. It is also an electromagnet and to give it the necessary magnetic strength the windings must carry a fairly high current.

Rotor winding Silver bearing copper is used for the winding with mica as the insulation between conductors. The outer frame is a rigid fabricated structure of welded steel plates. and mounted on insulated sleeves.the cross section of the conductor could not be increased but this would introduce another problems. The use of cold rolled grain-oriented steel can contribute to reduction in the weight of stator core for two main reasons: . Rotor balancing When completed the rotor must be tested for mechanical balance. Centrifugal force tries to lift the windings out of the slots and they are contained by wedges. Stator core: The stator core is built up from a large number of 'punching" or sections of thin steel plates. within this shell is a fixed cage of girder built circular and axial ribs. and it is further forged and machined. In order to make room for the large conductors. Very often a hole is bored through the centre of the rotor axially from one end of the other for inspection. usually made of forged steel. With good design and great care in construction this can be achieved. The ribs divide the yoke in the compartments through which hydrogen flows into radial ducts in the stator core and circulate through the gas coolers housed in the frame. This comprises an inner frame and outer frame. The end rings are secured to a turned recess in the rotor body. A mechanically strong insulator such as micanite is used for lining the slots. by shrinking or screwing and supported at the other end by fittings carried by the rotor body. The rotor is a cast steel ingot. Stator Stator frame: The stator is the heaviest load to be transported. The end shields of hydrogen cooled generators must be strong enough to carry shaft seals. Slots are then machined for windings and ventilation. The inner cage is usually fixed in to the yoke by an arrangement of springs to dampen the double frequency vibrations inherent in 2 pole generators. When rotating at high speed. The major part of this load is the stator core. The problem is really to get the maximum amount of copper into the windings without reducing the mechanical strength. In large generators the frame is constructed as two separate parts. The fabricated inner cage is inserted in the outer frame after the stator core has been constructed and the winding completed. Arrangements are therefore made in all designs to fix adjustable balance weights around the circumference at each end. Later designs of windings for large rotor incorporate combination of hollow conductors with slots or holes arranged to provide for circulation of the cooling gas through the actual conductors. The two ends of windings are connected to slip rings. which means that a check is made to see if it will run up to normal speed without vibration. body and this would cause mechanical weakness. To do this it would have to be uniform about its central axis and it is most unlikely that this will be so to the degree necessary for perfect balance.

a positive suction as well as discharge is created due to which a certain quantity of gas flows and cools the rotor. These bars are then place in the stator slots and held in with wedges to form the complete winding which is connected together at each end of the core forming the end turns. These end turns are rigidly braced and packed with blocks of insulation material to withstand the heavy forces which might result from a short circuit or other fault conditions. This method of cooling gives uniform distribution of temperature. The generator terminals are usually arranged below the stator. This Chapter deals with the rotor-hydrogen cooling system and stator water cooling system along with the shaft sealing and bearing cooling systems. to the bottom of the slot where it takes a turn and comes out on the similar canal milled on the other side of the rotor coil to the hot zone of the rotor. this method has an inherent advantage of eliminating the deformation of copper due to varying temperatures. The insulation must be sufficient to prevent leakage currents flowing between the phases to earth. Rotor Cooling System The rotor is cooled by means of gap pick-up cooling. dried under vacuum and hot pressed to form a solid insulation bar. The water is fed to the windings through plastic tubes. wherein the hydrogen gas in the air gap is sucked through the scoops on the rotor wedges and is directed to flow along the ventilating canals milled on the sides of the rotor coil. On recent generators (210 MW) the windings are made up from copper tubes instead of strips through which water is circulated for cooling purposes. Hydrogen Cooling System Hydrogen is used as a cooling medium in large capacity generator in view of its high heat . Due to the rotation of the rotor. Also. Generator Cooling System The 200/210 MW Generator is provided with an efficient cooling system to avoid excessive heating and consequent wear and tear of its main components during operation.a) There is an increase in core stacking factor with improvement in lamination cold Rolling and in cold buildings techniques. b) The advantage can be taken of the high magnetic permeance of grain-oriented steels of work the stator core at comparatively high magnetic saturation without fear or excessive iron loss of two heavy a demand for excitation ampere turns from the generator rotor. Stator Windings Each stator conductor must be capable of carrying the rated current without overheating. Windings for the stator are made up from copper strips wound with insulated tape which is impregnated with varnish.

thus transforming the voltage by stepping it up or down between circuits.B TRANFORMER A transformer is a device that transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another by magnetic coupling with out requiring relative motion between its parts.15750 V Current (stator) . In accordance with faraday‟s law of induction. An electromotive force (MMF) is induced across each winding. in the ideal transformer it is considered to be negligible. the EMFs are proportional to the rate of change of flux. is sometimes termed the back EMF”. the transformer greatly reduces energy losses and so enables the economic transmission of power over long distances.

By transforming electrical power to a high-voltage. although its presence is still required to drive flux around the magnetic circuit of the core.3. and in most cases. All but a fraction of the world‟s electrical power has passed trough a series of transformer by the time it reaches the consumer. It has thus shape the electricity supply industry. Basic principles The principles of the transformer are illustrated by consideration of a hypothetical ideal transformer consisting of two windings of zero resistance around a core of negligible reluctance. an effect known as mutual inductance.

Stray losses Leakage inductance is by itself loss less. Mechanical losses In addition to magnetostriction. or at an intermediate loading. and surrounding structures. adding to the buzzing noise. and those rated for electricity distribution usually perform better than 95%. and a solid core made from such a material also constitutes a single short-circuited turn trough out its entire length. The eddy current loss is a complex function of the square of supply frequency and inverse square of the material thickness.and those arising from the magnetic circuit. The losses vary with load current. Cooling system Large power transformers may be equipped with cooling fans. Power used to operate the cooling system is typically considered part of the losses of the transformer Rating of transformer Manufactured by Bharat heavy electrical limited No load voltage (hv) . At higher frequencies. A small transformer such as plug-in “power brick” used for lowpower consumer electronics may be less than 85% efficient. core. any leakage flux that intercepts nearby conductive material such as the transformers support structure will give rise to eddy currents and be converted to heat. the loss is proportional to the frequency. a small amount of energy is lost due to hysteresis within the core. oil pumps or water-cooler heat exchangers design to remove heat. For a given core material. and in turn causes losses due to frictional heating in susceptible cores. This produces the buzzing sound commonly associated with transformers. Eddy currents therefore circulate with in a core in a plane normal to the flux. since energy supplied to its magnetic fields is returned to the supply with the next halfcycle. Winding resistance dominates load losses contribute to over 99% of the no-load loss can be significant. Hysteresis losses Each time the magnetic field is reversed. Transformer losses are attributable to several causes and may be differentiated between those originated in the windings. skin effect and proximity effect create additional winding resistance and losses. and is a function of the peak flux density to which it is subjected. sometimes termed iron loss. Larger transformers are generally more efficient. and are responsible for resistive heating of the core material. These incite vibration with in near by metal work. and would therefore be 100% efficient. such as the core.85%. Magnetostriction Magnetic flux in a ferromagnetic material. Eddy current Ferromagnetic materials are also good conductors. Despite the transformer being amongst the most efficient of electrical machines with ex the most efficient of electrical machines with experimental models using superconducting windings achieving efficiency of 99.would have no energy losses.229 KV . Losses in the transformer arise from: Winding resistance Current flowing trough the windings causes resistive heating of the conductors. the alternating magnetic field causes fluctuating electromagnetic field between primary and secondary windings. energy is dissipated in the windings. causes it to physically expand and contract slightly with each cycle of the magnetic field. meaning that even an idle transformer constitutes a drain on an electrical supply. an effect known as magnetostriction. and may furthermore be expressed as “no load” or “full load” loss. and lending impetus to development of low-loss transformers. However. some times termed copper loss. and consuming a small amount of power.
