Guide for Cleanliness and Storage of Generators

The last two decades have seen major shifts in the power generation landscape which has resulted in cancellation or postponement of new build power stations or a change in generation technology. The underlaying causes are mainly linked to climate change policies to reduce CO2 emissions and to shift the power generation base from traditionally fossil-fuelled to more sustainable and renewable energy sources. This has been combined with fluctuations in the electricity market coupled with economic downturns.

Power generation and electromechanical energy conversion

This Technical Brochure has been created by a Working Group from the CIGRE Power generation and electromechanical energy conversion Study Committee which is one of CIGRE's 16 domains of work.
The SC covers all aspects of electromechanical energy conversion equipment, rotating electrical machines for power generation, grid support, and energy conversion within industrial applications. This includes research, development, design, manufacture and testing of power generation and electromechanical energy conversion equipment and their associated auxiliaries, commissioning, operation, condition assessment, maintenance, life extension, refurbishment, upgrades, efficiency improvement, conversion, storage and de-commissioning.
