Hydroelectric Power Plants Generator Voltage - 3 PDH
This course discusses the high-voltage system in hydroelectric power plants which includes equipment and conductors that carry current at transmission line-voltage, with their insulators, supports, switching equipment, and protective devices. The system begins with the high-voltage terminals of the step-up power transformers and extends to the point where transmission lines are attached to the switchyard structure. High-voltage systems include those systems operating at 69 kV and above, although 34.5-kV and 46-kV systems that are subtransmission-voltage systems are also covered in this discussion.
1. POWER TRANSFORMERS
