    Medium and Large Hydro Generators

    All of our medium and large hydro generators (> 50 MVA) feature oblique elements. This mechanical design principle allows perfect concentricity and circularity of all generator components under any operating condition. Furthermore, it reduces the thermo-mechanical stresses on the generator structure, which contributes to an improved reliability and lifetime.
