Generators from ELIN Motoren are not only used in wind power stations but also in the field of hydro, gas and steam turbines and offer compact construction and maximum service lifetime. The construction is electro-magnetically, thermically as well as structure-dynamically adapted to the customer’s station. We are in close contact with our customers throughout the entire design and engineering process in order to ensure high-quality end products and smooth operation.

Generators For Hydro Turbines

For the field of hydro generators, first and foremost salient-pole machines of low rpm and correspondingly high pole numbers are used. The poles can be mounted onto the nub as a single pole or via dovetail joint. In case of smaller machines, the entire rotor sheet is lasered out of a round blank. Crucial for the mechanical design is the emerging additional load in radial and vertical direction.

Generators For Gas and Steam Turbines

For gas and steam turbines, mostly 4-pole drum type rotor generators are used. This design is chosen for the highest of performances up to a construction height of 1.400 mm. For lower performances, salient-pole machines can be used as well.

In exceptional cases, asynchronous machines can be used as generators either full-scale converter or directly from the mains. As cooling systems, air or water cooling techniques, similar to the operation with asynchronous motors, are used.
