Design of A.C. Turbo-Generators

Nature volume 155, page 44 (13 January 1945) | Download Citation



IN a paper read by G. A. Juhlin on December 7, before the Institution of Electrical Engineers in London, on the standardization and design of A.C. turbo-type generators, the possibilities of complete unification of designs, an alternative of mechanical interchangeability, and the standardization of requirements, which is the first step in either of these directions, are considered in turn. The author discusses standardization of design, future development, and standardization of requirements, which latter is the really valuable part of the paper. The conclusions arrived at are that for both commercial and technical reasons complete unification of designs must be regarded as impracticable under present conditions, and it seems very doubtful whether the alternative of mechanical interchangeability would be feasible.
