Type tests completed in August 2008 have validated all electrical and mechanical design parameters of the 1992 MVA 4-pole, 1500 RPM turbogenerator that Teollisuuden Voima Oy is now installing in the Olkiluoto 3 nuclear power station. Olkiluoto 3 is the first European Pressurized Reactor (EPR) power station. In response to TVO's requirement that the generator capability be at least 10% above the 1992 MVA nameplate rating, Siemens Energy designed the generator so that its capability is above 2222… 
Negative-sequence Component Analysis of an AP1000 Nuclear Turbo-generator in an Internal Short-circuit Condition
Abstract—This article analyzes the fault location, negative-sequence component, and current harmonic content of the first AP1000 third-generation 1250-MVA nuclear half-speed (four-pole)

This contribution presents a comprehensive survey of classical and modern methods and technologies for excitation systems (ESs) of (WFSMs) of wound-field synchronous motors and generators.
Improvement of the transient negative-sequence rating formula for large generators based on the negative-sequence current component: Improvement of Transient Negative-Sequence Rating
Summary This paper proposes an improved transient negative-sequence calculation formula for a large-capacity nuclear power generator system under unbalanced network conditions. Because of the
Transient Negative-sequence Component Calculation for Large Generator Based on Wavelet Transform
The wavelet transform method is used to analyze the short circuit transient current and calculate the negative-sequence component, which provides a theoretical basis for the large generators’ protection and design.


Designing the cooling systems for the world's most powerful turbogenerator - Olkiluoto unit 3
Olkiluoto 3 will have a rated capability of 1992 MVA at 0.90 power factor, giving it the highest rating ever attained by a turbogenerator. Although the machine is highly efficient (expected generator
