EXPERIMENTAL AND NUMERICAL STUDY OF COOLING AIR FLOW IN A HYDROELECTRIC GENERATOR
Paper i proceeding, 2012

The cooling air flow inside an electric generator has been numerically simulated and validated with experimental measurements. The numerical studies are performed using OpenFOAM in a quasi-steady mode at three rotor speeds. The numerical and experimental results show similar flow distributions.
