Electric power is critical to the development of industrial activities. Electric generators produce large amount of heat. The interior of an electric generator needs to be constantly cooled in order to protect it from damage and ensure its smooth operation. Turbines help in generating electricity. Turbines driven by steam are used in virtually every major power plant, while wind and water turbines produce renewable energy. Air cooled turbo generator is the combination of a turbine directly connected to an electric generator for the generation of electric power. Large steam-powered turbo generators provide the majority of the world’s electricity. They are also used by steam powered turbo-electric ships. Globalization, digitalization, and increasing competition for metal casting are transforming the energy industry. New innovations and technologies are emerging in order to lower costs and increase the quality of the data of air cooled turbo generators. Over the years, the usage of modern and traditional air cooled turbo generators has increased significantly for power generation.
Air Cooled Turbo Generator Market: Drivers & Restraints
Air cooled turbo generators are less expensive compared to hydrogen cooled turbo generators. This is one of the key drivers of the market. Air cooled turbo generators require little maintenance. Increase in investment in power generation capacity is also expected to drive the demand for air cooled turbo generators. Furthermore, growth in the power generation industry is anticipated to boost the demand for air cooled turbo generators. Maintenance of damaged air cooled turbo generators is one of the major restraints of the market. Air cooled turbo generators require sufficient space and are inefficient in offshore setup. These generators possess indirectly cooled stator windings and directly cooled rotor windings. They are self-ventilated in a closed circuit with air-to-water coolers.
