50 Hz or 60 Hz synchronous generators driven by diesel engines, steam turbines, combustion gas turbines, and hydro-turbines are covered in this guide. The drive may be direct or through a gear box or other device that permits different speeds for the prime mover and the generator. The guide generally applies to the stator and rotor of generators with rated outputs of 1 MVA and above. The guide does not address machine auxiliaries or the excitation system. This guide will provide the generator Owner with insight into the considerations that are necessary when rewinding or refurbishing a generator. Particular emphasis is placed on the complete rewind of the stator and rotor.

Other Activities From This Working Group
Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.
No Active Projects
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
IEEE Guide for the Rewind of Synchronous Generators, 50 Hz and 60 Hz, Rated 1 MVA and Above
The general parameters for this guide apply to 50 Hz or 60 Hz synchronous generators driven by reciprocating engines, steam turbines, combustion turbines, and hydro turbines. The guide generally applies to the stator and rotor of generators with rated outputs of 1 MVA and above. The guide does not address machine auxiliaries or the excitation system.
