GASCOOLED HIGH VOLTAGE BUSHING FOR LARGE GENERATOR Filed July 21, 1953 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Invehtms: John J. Eaahn, Joseph A.\/iccon y The Attorne United States Patent GAS-COOLED HIGH VOLTAGE BUSHING FOR LARGE GENERATOR John J. Balm and Joseph A. Victor, Schenectady, N. Y., asslgnors to General Electric Company, a corporation of New York Application July 21, 1953, Serial No. 369,474

3 Claims. (Cl. 310-52) This relates to very large capacity electric generators, particularly to generators having a sealed casing containing a coolant gas such as hydrogen, although not necessarily limited thereto. The invention resides in an improved high voltage bushing construction for passing the electrical conductors through the wall of the sealed casing.

As the capacity of extremely large electric generators has increased, the physical size of the insulated bushings required to carry the load current through the casing of the machine has likewise increased. Heretofore it has been common practice to rely on convection currents in the fluid surrounding the bushing to dissipate the heat generated in the structure by passage of the heavy current therethrough. This has resulted in bushings of such large size that further increases have become impractical. Accordingly, a purpose of the present invention is to provide an improved forced ventilation gas-cooled bushing arrangement for large capacity electric generators of the type described.

A further object is to provide an improved ventilated high voltage bushing in which the cooling passages therein are arranged to become a part of the gas-cooling circuit of the generator proper.

Another object is to provide improved gas-cooled bushing structure requiring mechanical components of generally conventional construction, so the parts for the bush ing assembly are readily obtainable and only a minimum number of parts need be fabricated specially.

Other objects and advantages will become apparent from the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which Fig. 1 is a longitudinal view of a large generator, partly in section, showing the relation of the improved bushing structure to the easing of the generator and the gas coolant circuit therein, Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view of the bushing structure per se, Fig. 3 is a detail view of coolant gas inlet arrangement of the bushing, and Fig. 4 is a detail view, taken on the section 44 in Fig. 2, to make more clear another portion of the coolant gas circuit.

Generally stated, the invention is practiced by providing coolant passages throughout the length of the bushing and the electrical conductor associated immediately therewith, and arranging suitable ports and conduits communicating with selected portions of the generator coolant flow path at such pressures that the differential therebetween causes an adequate flow of cooling fluid through the bushing structure.

Referring now more particularly to Fig. l, the invention is shown as applied to avery large generator having an output on the order of 200,000 kw., the sealed casing of which is indicated generally at 1. The generator rotor 2 has a shaft portion 2a adapted to be coupled to a prime mover such as a stream turbine (not shown). The laminated stator structure. 3 is suitably supported in the generator frame members 1a. Mounted on the right-hand end of the rotor is a suitable cooling fan, indicated diagrammatically as an axial flow single stage blower 4.

2,742,582 Patented Apr. 17, 1956 As will be appreciated by those skilled in the art, the generator frame and associated baffle members are arranged to direct coolant gas from the fan 4 to the air gap between rotor 2 and stator 3, through radial passages provided in the stator. structure, and through a water-cooled heat exchanger 5. This gaseous coolant flow path is indicated by the flow arrows in Fig. l. The details need not be noted here, except that to maintain circulation of the cooling gas through the ventilation passages, there will be created a pressure dilferential between chambers 6 and 7 of perhaps 8 of water, representing the friction drop in pressure experienced by the coolant fluid between these two points in the circuit.

It is to be noted that, in accordance with usual practice, these pressures refer to operation with air as the cooling gas. When a gas of smaller density such as hydrogen is employed, the pressures will be proportionately lower, according to the density of the gas.

The high voltage bushings to which the invention particularly relates are illustrated generally in Fig. l at 8, 9. Actually, there may be several pairs of these bushings disposed circumferentially around the casing, the precise number being a function of the electrical circuit employed. Ordinarily there will be six bushings for a three-phase generator. Since the high voltage bushings are all of generally similar construction, only the details of the one identified 8 are described herein.

It will be apparent that the bushings 8, 9 are supported on a box structure 10 secured to the outer wall of the generator casing 1. It is to be particularly observed that the generator casing is provided with a generous opening at 11 through which cooling fiuid from the chamber 6 is communicated to the interior of box 10 by way of an opening 12 between the box and generator casing. The box structure 10 includes an axially extending portion 10a which serves to form a portion of the coolant path to the ports 10b, through which coolant is admitted to the annular chamber identified 13. With this arrangement it will be apparent that coolant discharged from the fan 4 is caused to circulate directly over the outside surfaces of the bushings 8, 9.

It will also be observed in Fig. 1 that bushing assembly 8 is connected to a conductor 14 having a terminal 15 secured to the armature conductor bars 15a. Conductor 14 is supported from the adjacent Wall of the generator casing by means of a suitable insulating bushing 16. The details a of this are not material, since any conventional insulator may be used.

It will be observed that the bushings 8, 9 are provided with bolting flanges 8a, 9a secured by suitable threaded fastenings 8b to a cover plate member 10c. The internal end portions of the bushing assemblies project through openings in the cover plate 10c and are disposed in the box 10 in a manner which will be obvious from Fig. l.

The details of the bushing 8 will be seen in more particularity by reference to Figs. 2-4.

In Fig. 2, it will be seen that the electrical conductors are hollow tubular members of conductive material, ordinarily copper. The conductor identified generally at 14 in Fig. 1 has an inner conductive copper tubular member 14a (Fig. 2) insulated by a wound layer of tape or equivalent insulation 14b. The conductor 14a is coupled to a similar short section of conductive tubing identified 16 by a conventional coupling clamp member 17, made in two parts and secured together by suitable fastenings 17a. Those familiar with the art will appreciate that this is a purely conventional type of coupling device commonly used to connect bus bars or equivalent high capacity condoctors of electricity. The short tube 16 is in turn coupled to another short tube 18 by a coupling clamp member 19. Tube 18 is connected to a special fitting Zt) by another clampingdevice"zljwhich is of the same type as --thatshown -at 19.

As will be seen more particularly as the description proceeds, the special fitting 20 performs a number of func- -=tions. -Itserves as the priinary conductive -path from the conductor tube "18 to another' conductive tube-22, '-=-=which maybe 'threaded-ontothereduced 'end'porti'on of fitting 'as indicated by the threaded joint 22a. "To improvethe' electrical bond at this-point, thisjointmay -be brazed. iThe conductor-tube 22 termin'ates atthe external side of the bushing'assembly in a threaded terminal i-portion23-;whicl1' is adapted toreceive a" suitable threaded coupling-device for'connecting the-bushing conductor to the external circuit (not-shown).

'5 Those skilled in the art-w ill appreciate "that it is im- -portant, from-an electricalstandpoint, 'th'at there be no magnetic material between the bushing structures 8, 9. To" this end, the coverplate member 100 -is fabricated of aluminum or equivalent non-magnetic material.

i Because -'the'-volt-'agepotential of the electrical conduc- --tors will been the orderof 20,000voltsto ground in normal operation, it is of c'ourse er the utmostim'portance that proper electrical insulation be provided for the conductive members 'lM-a} -16, -l8,-"20,"22. Actually, this insul-ation 1 must be -adequate to Withstand approximately 40,000 volts appliedas" a' 'high' potential test-du1ing assembly. The insulation for'the conductor- 14acomprises a woundlayerof suitable in'sulating tape identified sl ibg which'mayflfor inst-ancefbe of-well-known'rnica or glass composition. It will be seen that this tape covering joins a similar layer of tape identified 24 "whichextends over the conductors 16; -18, 20, all the way-tothe upper end of the*porcelaindnsulator '25. ln order' to facilitate -winding of this tape layer, and provide a smooth external contour, the comparatively'irregular coupling members 1 17,19, 21, are covered-with a plastic insulating material identified 24a, which may, for instance, be an asbestos and varnish composition.

The porcelain insulator 25 is of conventional construction and abuts the radial flange 20a-of-fitting20 with a compressible gasket 25a therebetween. 7 The-lower end of-insulator 25=abuts flange-8a of the-su'pp'o'rt cylinder member 26, with a similar'gasket' ZSb-therebe'tween. The gaskets 25a, 25b, are of course forthe purpose of providing a fluid seal and permitting'difieren'tiahthermal expansion between the ceramic insulator 25-andthe related metal parts, without imposing excessive stresses on the insulator.

The support cylinder'member 26'is'also ofaluminum, in order to obtain non-magnetic properties," and is 'secured to the-cover plate member-10c by threaded fastenings 8b. A suitable gasket 8c provides a fluid seal. The

lower end-flange'26a"ofsupp0rt'cylinder26 abuts a second conventional porcelain'insulator"27,-with= a gasket 27a "the'rebetween. The lower'end of insulator 27 is engaged by a'washer member 28, with a similar gasket 27b there- 'between. Anotherwasher member29 is spaced from the washer 28 with a compressible gasket30 therebetween. -A clamping nut 31 is threaded on the extreme end portion 23 of the conductor 22-soas to'compress *the washers 23, "29 together and against the" end 'of-*insulator"27, in a -manner which will be obvious from Fig.2.

' The'conductor 22 is insulated from the=aluminum support cylinder member'26 by a laminated insulatoridentified-'32. This may be made of a-paper and phenolic laminated insulating material-such as those knownto the trade as Textolite -or"He rkolite. "This insulating tube is of such length, extending well into the porcelain insulators 25, 27, as to provide a dielectric path'ofsufficient length between the conductor22 arid metalsupport cylinder 26 as to prevent current leakagethereb'etween.

'By reference to Fig. 1, it will-be=seen that the u'pper end portion of the conductor14 is '-disposed-in*the"high pressure coolant chamber-6. H-igh pressure coolant is admitted to the hollow conductor I mby-an inlet fitting shown in detail in Fig. 3. This comprises a gas inlet -box-identified- Me, conveniently formed 05 a-laminated face generally' -up-'stream w'ith'resp'ec't to the coolant flow in the chamber 6. Thus there may be some impact pressure tending to induce flow 'of c'oolant into the box structure 140. It will be apparent from the flow arrows in Fig. 2 how the-coolantentering through the box structure 140 passes through the conductor 14a, through a suitable port 18b in the conductor 18, thence through a port 2011 In-order'tot'provide high velocity gas fiowrelativc to "the conductor-22, andto provide a convenient'exit for the coolant; the "special cooling'tube member 33 is dis posed 'coaxially within the conductive tube 22. It will be seen in Fig 2 that the upper end-of cooling tube 33 fits sn'u'gly into an opening in the fitting-Zilandprojects a substantial distance ther'efrom. 'The remainder of tube --33='defi'nes-longitudinal coolant passages with the walls of "the' fittingmember '20 and the surrounding conductive l 'tube 22. in the sectional view of Fig. 4, which will make it clear This coaxial'r'elation may be seen more clearly how 'the cooling tube-33 defines an axial passage 34with the fitting 20, and 'how the clamp fitting 2llis se'cured'by the threaded fastenings" 21a to hold the conductor 18 to fit'ting 20.

lt will beapparent from Fig; 2 that coolantfrom the -h'ol low'-conductor- 18 enters-port 20b and passes by way of the passage 34 to the annular space 35 defined between cooling tube 33 and conductor tube 22. The lower end =of c'oolant -tube-33:. defines a substantial axial clearance *s'p'ace 35a with an end closure disk 36 secured by any suitable means in the open end of the threaded conductor portion 23. The cooling tube 33 forms the discharge passage for spent'coolant. Tothis end, the extremeupper endof tube -33 is connected-to ahose' 37 of flexible synthetic 'rubber or other suitable insulating material secured by a suitable h'o'se- -clamp 37a andby clamp 37b to a nipple 37c in a manner which'will be obvious from the drawing.

-It will also 'bes'eenthat the insulating tape 24a extends over the hose clamp,- with a filling of insulating plastic material-24a. -By comparison with Fig. 1, it will be seen 'thatthe' coolant discharge'hose '37 extends axially and discharges into the annular chamber 7. As noted previously, chamber 7 is at a pressure differential on the order of 8" ofwater below the pressure in the coolant supply chamber 6. This'pressure differential is of coursewhat produces the flowof coolant indicated'by the flow'arrows in Fig. 2.

It'will bes'een'that the invention provides a reasonably simple mechanical structure with effectiveelectrical insulation between the high voltage conductors and the grounded metal parts, and readymeans for securing adequate'flowof coolant, both over the outside surfaces of a portion of the bushing assembly-andin heat transfer relation with the inner surfacesof-the conductive members throughout the length of the bushing assembly. The variousports and coolant passages'must'of course besuitably proportioned,-'taking intocon'sideration the magnitude of the pressure drop available for causing the coolant flow,

in-order that the quantity of coolant' flowing and the velocities over the metaL conductor surfaces will be sufliciently high. toefiect the heat transfer required to maintain the conductors at safezoperating temperatures. It

' will be seen that the-annular passages 34, SS'may readily beproportioned soas te obtain the necessary coolant vel'o'eity 'therein. It' is also important to'note that the relation with the innermost end portions of the conductor 14a, which are likely to be hottest because connected directly to the terminal fitting 15 and the end portions of armature bars 15a which are somewhat difficult to cool. Thus, a substantial amount of heat will be transmitted by conduction to the upper end portions of conductor tube 14a.

While only one embodiment of the invention has been described particularly herein, it will be obvious to those skilled in the art that many minor alterations and substitutions of mechanical equivalents might be made without departing from the spirit of the invention. The precise type and arrangement of the coupling clamp members 17, 19, 21, etc., may take other forms, as may the coolant inlet fitting 14c. The coolant discharge tube 33 may be either of a suitable metal or of a plastic insulating material. The precise mechanical means used to seal and secure the porcelain insulators 25,27 may of course take many forms.

It is of course intended to cover by the appended claims all such modifications as fall within the true spirit and scope of the invention.
