Abstract:

The work included the preliminary studies and design of a 12,000 RPM, 5 MVA, 400 Hz generator with a rotating field. It also includes the individual tests of the most critical components, i.e., the dynamic cryogenic seals, power leads, interconnections of the SC coils, SC field windings, and construction and test of a complete rotor. The cold rotor tests at 4.2K were conducted up to the overspeed value of 13,200 rpm. Full excitation of the field equivalent to 5.32 MVA was obtained at the operating speed of 12,000 rpm.
