Limits of application of the ECOBulb unit

No regulation of the excitation means:

No regulation of the Power Factor (direct)

No regulation of the Voltage

Over Voltage proportional to the over speed

No isolated operation possible

The ECOBulb unit is adapted to the integration into an existing strong


and stable electrical network, in Europe, North America,

Advantages of the ECOBulb unit

High Turbine efficiency

Very high Generator efficiency at full and part load

No step - up Gear nor lubrication system

Very compact unit thanks to the complete

integration of the

Turbine and Generator


The ECOBulb unit is the result of putting together the
competences inside of ANDRITZ HYDRO for a Compact Hydro
development
