    This guide covers general recommendations for the operation, loading, and maintenance of turbine-driven synchronous generators having cylindrical rotors. It does not apply to generators having salient pole rotors. Because of the rapid development in generator design and because of the ingenuity of individual generator designers, many variations are incorporated in existing machines. Therefore, it is not possible in this guide to assign specific values or fixed methods. The most that this guide can accomplish is to offer accepted and tried values and methods and give warning where hazards might be encountered.<> View full abstract»
