Generator and Auxiliary Systems Flow Paths and Major Components

Learning objectives

  • Describe the following seal oil system components and systems and identify their place in the flow path:
    • Hydrogen seal oil supply
    • Air side of the seal oil system
    • Defoaming/detraining tank
    • Seal oil return
    • Hydrogen supply system
  • Explain the process to purge hydrogen from the generator and identify the purpose of doing so

Course overview

As discussed in the previous lesson, the generator is a major link in the chain or equipment that modern generation stations use to convert the energy in fossil fuels to electricity. The Generator and Auxiliary Systems' Flow Paths and Major Components training course focuses on the generator and its auxiliary systems' flow path. It also examines some of its major components.

This online training course identifies the flow paths associated with the major components that support generator operation. It covers:

  • Seal oil system/hydrogen side
  • Seal oil return
  • Seal oil system/air side
  • Hydrogen supply system

This course is part of the Generator and Auxiliary Systems and Control training series.
