Testing for In Situ Generator Inspection
Generators are crucial components in an industrial power plant and are designed to operate reliably for many years. One of the most expensive parts of a 3-phase generator is the stator, which is where the energy from the magnetic field is converted into electrical energy. The condition of the generator and its core deteriorates over time, increasing the likelihood of failures. Quantitative testing and periodic inspections of the generator core are necessary to avoid unplanned outages.
- Condition of the generator
- Routine maintenance/overhaul
- Long-term condition
