An Introduction to Generator Voltage, Station Service and Control Systems for Hydroelectric Power Plants

J. Paul Guyer, P.E., R.A., Fellow ASCE, Fellow AEI

This course will introduce you to the generator-voltage system for hydroelectric power plants, which includes the leads and associated equipment between the generator terminals and the low-voltage terminals of the GSU transformers, and between the neutral leads of the generator and the power plant grounding system. The equipment generally associated with the generator-voltage system includes switchgear; instrument transformers for metering, relaying, and generator excitation systems; neutral grounding equipment; and surge protection equipment. The equipment is classified as medium-voltage equipment. This course also discusses the station service and control systems for hydroelectric power plants.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
