Electrical diagnostics of hydroelectric generators represent a cornerstone of any maintenance programs for rotating machines.

They make it possible to determine the condition of the winding and its insulation. The results make it possible to adapt the maintenance program and give valuable indications to the asset manager regarding the current condition of the machine and whether it requires an overhaul or replacement in the future.

Méthodologie

The complete diagnostic service is comprised of the following :

    stator

    • visual inspection
    • insulation resistance
    • leakage current
    • loss factor or delta tangent
    • offline partial discharge
    • final AC or DC voltage testing

    rotor

    • visual inspection
    • insulation resistance
    • pole drop test

    If necessary, HYDRO Exploitation can also perform one of the specific services listed above. Tests are carried out in compliance with the IEC and IEEE international standards.
