Wind Generator Engineering

As in all of the segments of our practice, EME prides ourselves on developing cost effective and practical solutions to rotating equipment issues. As expert machine designers, we are uniquely capable of understanding in detail the design of any machine, and formulating corrective actions to address any deficiencies that may exist.

For the case below, a thermal ventilation study was performed and a modification to the ventilation circuit developed which would decrease the both the stator temperature and the bearing temperature.

Testing at the EME Shop demonstrated very little air flow through the center tubes
