New Tech Note

February 8, 2013

It has been nearly two years since our last Tech Note, but today we have released the latest write up. This month’s topic is about bearings for turbine-generators found in nuclear electric generation plants.

Many nuclear plants run at 1800 RPM where many fossil fueled steam plants run at 3600 RPM. Considering the generator, half the speed means twice the poles dramatically increasing the weight of the rotor.

The new Tech Note focuses on heavily loaded bearings.
