Electrical Generator


The 21kV, 500MVA Generator is a hydrogen cooled, two-pole, three-phase synchronous generator. It is rigidly coupled to the Gas Turbine and coupled by a self-shifting and synchronising clutch to the Steam Turbine.

The Generator converts the mechanical power delivered by the Steam Turbine and Gas Turbine into electrical power which is exported to the grid via the station generator transformer T2002.
