Description (max. 300 characters):

Dieser Kurs widmet sich der Auslegung und Berechnung von Wasserkraft-Grossgeneratoren im Leistungsbereich bis zu mehreren hundert Megawatt. Solche Maschinen werden in der Praxis für ein spezifisches Kraftwerk als Prototypen dimensioniert. Diese Dimensionierung ist ein multi-disziplinäres Problem, bei dem elektromagnetische, mechanische und kühlungstechnische Aspekte betrachtet werden müssen.

This course is dedicated to the design and calculation of large hydro-generators in the power range up to serveral hundred megawatts. In general these machines are sized for a specific power plant as prototypes. This dimensioning is a multi-disciplinary problem where electromagnetic, mechanical and cooling aspects need to be considered.
