Problems in the Design and Development of 750 MW Turbo-Generators covers selected problems mainly related to projected machines in the development of turbo-generators. This book describes the main lines of research at the Electromechanics Institute of the U.S.S.R. Academy of Sciences.

This book is divided into six chapters and begins with an overview of the progress in the generation of electricity along with the rapid economic development of the U.S.S.R. The succeeding chapter deals with the use of efficient cooling system of the winding copper to address the problem of electrical machine's unit power performance. The discussion then shifts to a theoretical analysis of the so-called "geometric series" of large turbo-generators. A chapter examines the problems related to design of these machines, specifically the main mechanical factors limiting the dimensions of turbo-generators. The concluding chapters provide a summary of the results of the planned increase in unit output of the single-shaft 750 MW turbo-generator.

This book is intended primarily to engineers, metallurgists, and scientists who deal with the problems in the development of very large turbo-generators.
