Generator stator rewinds and upgrades
GE provides a comprehensive portfolio of generator stator upgrades including rewinds and replacement stators for any make of generator to help increase reliability and availability.
Power plant generators originally intended to be operated at base load. However, the industry shift to cycling operation has multiple implications for operation, like frequent starts and stops, peak operation, turning gear operation, etc. leading to additional stress and an increased risk for forced generator outages.
Our fast stator rewind can be done in as little as 18 days and helps you take advantage of one technology and one process for any type of conventionally cooled generator. Every customer can benefit from a rapid response, shorter downtime, as well as increased cost efficiency, quality and reliability.
The GE advantage
GE’s Flex Package includes integrated stator and rotor upgrades that support your plant to be ready for cycling operation, as well as lowering the risk of failure of critical components in your power plant.
Benefits of the Flex Package
A replacement stator is the preferred solution when your outage duration doesn’t support the time needed to rewind the stator. A replacement spare stator can also provide high plant availability when combined with an emergency response plan.
The GE advantage
Jessica Nimmons, Senior Engineer in the Generator Engineering Non-Metallic Materials Lab, explains the different types of testing performed on GE’s generator stators, including high-voltage endurance testing.
Our generator health monitoring solutions allow you to plan your maintenance to avoid forced outages.
