L Topaloglu, C. Ocak, L Tarimer. A Case Study of Getting Performance Characteristics of a Salient Pole Synchronous Hydrogenerators // Electronics and Electrical Engineering. - Kaunas: Technologija, 2010. - No. 1(97). - P. 57-61. Today, continuously increasing electrical energy demand makes every one to investigate how to benefit maximum efficiency from hydro-electric power plants' generators. In this study, 560 W, 400 V, 1000 rpm, 6 pole salient pole synchronous machine's heat, excited voltage, efficiency and losses have been researched to see the influence on hydrogenerators and to design a suitable model for natural running environment. In addition to these, the field current versus stator current under various load conditions has been determined and the reactive capability of a hydrogenerator has been calculated. It has been seen that the performance characteristics of the designed hydrogenerator was directly related with the running environment and the load conditions.
