A1 Rotating Electrical Machines
To facilitate and promote the progress of engineering and the international exchange of information and knowledge in the field of rotating electrical machines. To add value to this information and knowledge by means of synthesising state of the art practices and developing recommendations.
The activities of this Study Committee cover economics, design, construction, tests, behaviour and materials of turbine generators, hydro generators, non-conventional machines and large motors. The relationship between electrical machines and the mechanical behaviour of coupled prime movers behaviour should be analysed. In addition, behaviour of rotating machines as the part of the power station and its performance in the power system will be covered in collaboration with other relevant Committees.
In order to respond to the future environment, different strategic directions will be followed. The long term goal of asset management is the most effective operation of machines to optimise performance, reliability and efficiency and to inform maintenance decisions through suitable diagnostics and understanding behaviour and signs of deterioration.
Each Study Committee oversees a number of Working Groups.
