Application Note

Stator Cooling Water In Power Generation Plants

Source: 3M Separation and Purification Sciences Division

Power Generation plants produce electricity by converting one form of primary energy (nuclear or non-nuclear) to motive power in order to drive generators and produce electricity. During this process, heat is generated in the generator stator coils. Efficient operation and effective energy conversion is significantly impacted by how well the coils of the stator are cooled by the cooling water.

The purpose of this Customer Application Brief is to describe how an effective cooling water filtration system will provide long term added protection of the fine cooling channels of the stator cooling system in order to greatly reduce unscheduled and costly shut-downs.
