Large Industrial Generators

Power Conversion’s Cylindrical High Speed Rotor is made from a solid cylindrical forging, and machines out the pole bodies and pole tips. The field windings are edge wound copper strips with dimensionally stable insulation material bonded between the turns.
Designed for medium-speed diesel applications
Power Conversion’s Gas and Steam Generator is based on a modular construction concept that uses the latest design and manufacturing techniques, including Vacuum Pressure Impregnation (VPI) insulation systems for both the stator and rotor components, and Pin Vent stator technology.
