Capacitive and inductive sensors for diagnosing air-gap anomalies in synchronous generators

Abstract

This paper presents the development of distance sensors to measure air-gap irregularities in synchronous generators. Among various causes, air-gap anomalies may arise due to shaft eccentricity, which will be dealt with in this work. A prototype machine was specially manufactured allowing the deformation of rotor and stator yokes, as well as the radial… (More)
