Generator Cooling

Hydrogen is used to cool the windings of large power plant generators because of hydrogen's high heat capacity and low density. Power plants utilizing hydrogen-cooled generators must maintain optimal hydrogen purity and pressure in the generator casing for proper operation, efficiency, safety, and equipment reliability. Continuous addition of ultra-pure hydrogen from a Proton Onsite hydrogen generation system to make up for hydrogen seal losses can optimize hydrogen purity and pressure for best operating performance and uptime.  

Hydrogen Generation Systems provide reliable, safe, low-cost hydrogen for generator cooling, giving power plant customers an attractive return on investment while improving site security, safety, and personnel productivity.
