A1 Rotating Electrical Machines
TECHNOLOGICAL FIELD OF ACTIVITY
- Turbine generators
- Hydro generators
- Rotating generators for renewable/variable applications
Within its technical field of activity, Study Committee A1 addresses topics throughout the asset
management life-cycle phases; from conception, through research, development, design, production,
deployment, operation, and end-of life. At all stages, technical, safety, economic, environmental
and social aspects are addressed as well as interactions with, and integration into, the evolving
power system and the environment. All aspects of performance, specification, testing and the
application of testing techniques are within scope, with a specific focus on the impact of changing
interactions and demands due to evolution of the power system. Life cycle assessment techniques,
risk management techniques, education and training are also important aspects.
Within this framework additional specific areas of attention include:
- Theory, principles and concepts, functionality, technological development,
design, performance and application of materials, efficiency.
- Manufacturing, quality assurance, application guidance, planning, routing and location,
construction, erection, installation.
- Reliability, availability, dependability, maintainability and maintenance, service, condition
monitoring, diagnostics, restoration, repair, loading, upgrading, uprating.
- Refurbishment, re-use/re-deployment, deterioration, dismantling, disposal.
