Technical data

Stator/Rotor core

Laminated and enamel-insulated on both sides to minimise eddy-current losses.


Salient pole type.
Made by copper flat wire.
H class insulated with enamel coating.
Winding retaining by pass-through bars of high quality steel.
Rotating rectifier: Graetz diode bridge with 6 diodes.
Rotors are dynamically balanced with a half key applied to the shaft extension in accordance with IEC 60034-14 to vibration grade normal A. Special vibration level construction is available.


General data
Single or double antifriction bearing grease lubricated (ball or roller type) or oil lubricated sleeve bearing.
The theoretical lifetime of bearings, L10h according to ISO 281/1 standard, of standard horizontal construction generators, without external forces (radial and / or axial) is in excess of 50.000 hours. On request, the lifetime of bearings, L10h can be in excess of 100.000 hours. Locating bearings are on the D end side and floating bearings on the ND end side.
Bearing selection
Antifriction bearings up to 560 frame size included.
Sleeve bearings from 630 frame size included (available for smaller frame sizes) Antifriction bearings can be mounted on 630/710 frame size according to site working conditions.
Regreasing system (for antifriction bearing)
Both bearings are fitted with grease nipple.
Bearing insulation
ND end bearing can be insulated to prevent any harmful circulating current from passing through the bearing surfaces. Insulated antifriction bearings in standard configuration:

  • 4, 6 poles: insulated ND end bearing from 630 frame size
  • 8 poles: insulated bearing from 400 frame size
  • 10 poles: insulated bearing from 500 frame size

All ND end sleeve bearings are insulated as standard. All configurations are designed to withstand the following marine inclination.

Rotor: H class insulated with a synthetic enamel.

Protective treatments
Specific marine treatment.
Epoxivinilic and polyacrylic. Total minimum thickness 120 micromillimeters.

Operating conditions


During continuous duty (S1), the following overloads are allowed:
10% for 1 hour
15% for 10 minutes
30% for 4 minutes
50% for 2 minutes
These overloads must be occasional and followed by one hour of running at normal load or less.
