Exciters and PMG

Brushless exciter systems

- For electrics alternators -


PMG RES20008

specializes in Brushless exciter systems for power stations alternators and produces machines from 20 KW (600 mm diameter) to more than 300 KW (2400 mm diameter) covering the entire market needs .

The Exciters which we offer are designed to be assembled directly on the shaft of the main alternator without modification. They are provided with a rotating rectifier bridge and they are adapted to each alternator : Electric characteristics, shaft diameter, mechanical fixations. Furthermore, they can replace existing commutator exciters on hydraulic alternators in order to obtain a brushless system.


Exciters for power stations alternators.

exciters are made as follows :

Exciters associated with the rotating rectifier bridge

The current generated by the exciter must be rectified to be injected into the polar wheel of the main alternator, it's the job of the rotating rectifier. It consists generally of 6 diodes and can be equipped with over voltage protection or other safety devices.
Optimum reliability is obtained by use of a rectifier equipped only with diodes. Exciter stator is fed by a voltage regulator.

The exciters can be supplied with P M G :

Exciters for Hydro-electric Power Stations :

The majority of hydro-electric power stations were built before 1970. Today with new technologies, these power stations can increase their production of energy by 20% by renovating the unit harnesses alternator. The infrastructure is preserved, this relatively inexpensive solution is used worldwide.
With these modifications, the exciter system easily be modified to brushless system.

is one of the few companies worldwide who can offer the transformation of these original exciters to brushless exciters by re-using the original magnetic circuit thus cutting costs.

have already renovated any power stations worldwide.
