Presently, the power generation sector is experiencing increased pressure to deliver more power to markets using (in some cases) existing generation assets. As a result, power output is maximized by operating generators at the upper limits which effects their life. This requires high quality critical components, such as stator winding, to reliably operate a generator while satisfying power demands.

Further, in case of stator winding in-service failure, generator rewinds are often expedited resulting in a lack of quality control. Alternatively, during coil/bar production the necessary quality assurance steps are incorporated into the process in the form of third-party testing and inspections, leading to significant benefits to both the user and supplier.

Webinar Registration Closed

Thank you to everyone who attended this webinar on the importance of an independent quality control process for new stator coils and bars.

Webinar Details

This one-hour presentation will highlight the procedures, testing standards, and sample outcomes of a third-party, independent review process, which can help maximize the quality of a winding insulation system. Specific examples that emphasize when to conduct third-party testing/inspections of new stator coils/bars will also be discussed.
