Uses real world case studies to present the key technologies of design and application of the synchronous generator excitation system
This book systematically introduces the important technologies of design and application of the synchronous generator excitation system, including the three–phase bridge rectifier circuit, diode rectifier for separate excitation, brushless excitation system and the static self–stimulation excitation system. It fuses discussions on specific topics and basic theories, providing a detailed description of the theories essential for synchronous generators in the analysis of excitation systems.
Design and Application of Modern Synchronous Generator Excitation Systems provides a cutting–edge examination of excitation system, addressing conventional hydro–turbines, pumped storage units, steam turbines, and nuclear power units. It looks at the features and performance of the excitation system of the 700MW hydro–turbine deployed at the Three Gorges Hydropower Plant spanning the Yangtze River in China, as well as the working principle and start–up procedure of the static frequency converter (SFC) of pumped storage units. It also expounds on the composition of the excitation transformer, power rectifier, de–excitation equipment, and automatic excitation regulator in addition to the performance features of the excitation system of conventional 600/1000MW turbines and the excitation system of the 1000MW nuclear power unit.
