Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

This application claims priority to Korean Patent Application No. 10-2015-124300, filed on Sep. 2, 2015, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

BACKGROUND

Field

Exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator, and more particularly, to a device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator capable of actively coping with a change in a length and an outer diameter of a core.

Description of the Related Art

Generally, a power generator that is a device using an electronic induction action to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy is a device using a principle of generating power when a conductor performs a rotational motion within a magnetic field. The power generator uses hydrogen gas and water as a cooling medium and has a completely sealed structure to prevent penetration of dust or moisture and leakage of the hydrogen gas.

Ventilation in an inside of the power generator is made by a closed circulation scheme using a fan attached to a rotor shaft that is a rotor and the power generator has a cooler embedded therein to cool the hydrogen gas. Further, both ends of a stator are provided with a rotor bearing and a shaft sealing device.

The stator is largely divided into a frame forming an appearance, a stator coil, and a stator core around which the stator coil is wound. The stator core serves to support the stator coil while providing a low resistance path for a magnetic flux generated from the rotor.

A stator frame is a structure providing a space to properly function each component such as the stator core, the rotor, the cooler, and a high pressure bushing and serves as a frame of the power generator.

Among fixtures provided in the stator frame, key bars serve to support a stacked weight when the stator core and the core are stacked and have a structure as disclosed in Japanese Patent Laid-Open Publication No. 2002-204539. At the time of the installation of the key bars, the key bars are coupled with the stator core by a scheme of setting heights of the key bars using a surface plate and then coupling the key bars at a fixed position one by one using a crane.

The existing key bars are fixedly coupled at an inner side surface of the frame by a welding and is assembled in a structure in which it is stacked by inserting the stator core into the key bar. By the way, even though the key bar and the stator core adhere to each other, the key bar and the stator core are repeatedly attached to or detached from each other by a magnetic force generated upon the rotation of the rotor, and as a result, noise and vibrations may be large, or the like.

Further, the existing key bar has a round shape, and therefore if a length, an outer diameter, and tangent stiffness, and the like of the core are changed, there is a problem in that a device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator needs to be completely re-designed and the coupled structure thereof needs to be changed.

DESCRIPTION OF SPECIFIC EMBODIMENTS

Hereinafter, a device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator according to an exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view illustrating a device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator according to an exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure and FIG. 2 is a front view of the device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator illustrated in FIG. 1.

A stator includes a stator frame forming an appearance, a stator core 10, and a coil winding portion, in which the stator coil is wound around the coil winding portion.

The stator core 10 is configured to include punching, an inside space block (ISSB), and an outside space block (OSSB). The punching provides a low resistance path for a magnetic flux and the internal space block serves as a circulation path of hydrogen gas that is a refrigerant. The outside space block delivers a clamping pressure of a flange and serves as a circulation path of the hydrogen gas.

Generally, a magnetic force generated by a rotation of a rotor generates vibrations in the stator core 10. The exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure provides the device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator that may be applied without changing a structure even though a length and an outer diameter of a core are changed, while decreasing the vibration of the stator core 10.

As illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2, a device 100 for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator according to an exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure is a ring-shaped band having a predetermined width.

The device 100 for preventing a vibration is configured to include a ring-shape fastening band 110 installed to enclose the stator core 10 (see FIG. 3) along a circumferential direction at an outer circumferential surface of the stator core 10 and connecting portions 112 connecting the fastening band 110. An inner circumferential surface of the fastening band 110 is integrally provided with a plurality of key bars 130 and an outer circumferential surface of the fastening band 110 is coupled with a plurality of elastic portions 150. Section plates 170 are provided to be spaced apart from the outer circumferential surface of the fastening band 110 at a predetermined interval.

The fastening band 110 has a shape in which one side of the ring shape is separated and the separated parts are fixedly connected to each other by the connecting portions 112 to become a ring shape. The connecting portion 112 has a block shape into which the separated end portions of the fastening band 110 are each inserted and may be formed in the same shape as support blocks 132 supporting the key bars 130. The connecting portions 112 and the separated end portions of the fastening band 110 that are coupled with each other are fixed by interconnecting to each other by the fastening bolt, and then the connecting portions 112 are coupled with the key bars 130.

The plurality of key bars 130 are provided on an inner circumferential surface of the fastening band 110 and are coupled with the support block 132 by welding, or the like. The key bar 130 has a bar shape having a width smaller than that of the fastening band 110 and a part coupled with the support block 132 may have a cross section having a circular shape, a quadrangular shape, a dove tail shape, or the like. A part exposed from the support block 132 to be toward the stator core 10 may have a cross section having a circular shape, a quadrangular shape, a dove tail shape, or the like.

The support block 132 has a tetrahedral block shape and is provided with a hollow, such that the fastening band 110 penetrates through the hollow and is thus inserted into the fastening band 110. Therefore, the support block 132 may move along an outer circumferential direction of the fastening band 110. The support block 132 may be installed to control a distance from other adjacent support blocks 132 and the elastic portions 150 are disposed between the respective support blocks 132.

The elastic portion 150 is configured to include a plate coupling portion 152 coupled with an inner circumferential surface of the section plate 170 and a band coupling portion 154 coupled with the outer circumferential surface of the fastening band 110. The elastic portion 150 and the support block 132 are alternately disposed to each other. Similar to the support block 132, the elastic portion 150 may be movably coupled to control a distance from the adjacent elastic portions 150 or an interval from the adjacent support blocks 132.

The plate coupling portion 152 is provided with a ‘’-letter groove corresponding to the width of the section plate 170 and the groove is press-fitted in the inner circumferential surface of the section plate 170 to be coupled with the section plate 170. The plate coupling portion 152 may couple the groove with the section plate 170 by a press-fit scheme and may have a shape like tongs to be detachably coupled with the section plate 170.

Although not illustrated in detail, a length of the plate coupling portion 152 may be changed. The length of the plate coupling portion 152 means a length corresponding to a diameter direction of the stator core 10 and the length of the plate coupling portion 152 may be changed to cope with the change in the outer diameter of the stator core 10. A method for changing the length of the plate coupling portion 152 may be variously applied and therefore is not particularly limited to any one example.

For example, a structure for supporting a stator core having a diameter of 93 inches and a structure for supporting a stator core having a diameter of 94 inches are designed to be completely different from each other, but the fastening band 110 according to the device 100 for preventing a vibration of the present disclosure may support the stator core having a diameter of 92 to 95 inches on the same design condition.

The band coupling portion 154 is provided with a ‘’-letter groove corresponding to a width of the fastening band 110 and the outer circumferential surface of the fastening band 110 is press-fitted in the groove to couple between the band coupling portion 154 and the fastening band 110. The band coupling portion 154 may couple the groove with the fastening band 110 by the press-fit scheme and may have a shape like tongs to be detachably coupled with the fastening band 110.

If the diameter of the stator core 10 is increased due to the foregoing structure and thus the outer diameter of the stator core 10 is increased, a length of the elastic portion 150 is adjusted to correspond to the increase in the outer diameter of the stator core 10. Further, when the length of the stator core 10 is increased, the number of elastic portions 150 is increased to cope with the change in the length of the stator core 10.

As illustrated in FIG. 2, the stator core 10 may radially be vibrated along the diameter direction and may be vibrated even along the tangent direction of the outer circumferential surface. However, the elastic portion 150 of the device 100 for preventing a vibration supports the fastening band 110 supporting the stator core 10 and the section plate 170 while the fastening band 110 and the section plate 170 being spaced apart from each other and therefore may cope with the vibration generated in the diameter direction of the stator core 10.

Further, the plurality of elastic portions 150 support the fastening band 110 and therefore may also cope with the vibration generated along the tangent direction of the outer circumferential surface. Therefore, it is possible to achieve higher dynamic stability upon the installation of the stator core.

The installation example of the device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator according to the exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure having the foregoing configuration will be described below.

FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating an installation example of the device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator according to the exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure and FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating another installation example of the device for preventing a vibration of a stator core for a power generator.

The section plate 170 partitions an introduction portion and a discharge portion through which hydrogen gas is introduced and discharged corresponding to a ventilation structure of the stator core 10. In this case, as illustrated in FIG. 3, the coupled structure in which all the section plates 170 are provided with the elastic portions 150 may be applied. When the corresponding structure is applied to all the section plates 170, all the section plates 170 are coupled to the stator core 10 by the coupled structure between the elastic portions 150 and the fastening band 110.

Alternatively, as illustrated in FIG. 4, according to the design, some of the section plates 170 are coupled with the elastic portions 150 and some of the section plates 170 are not coupled with the elastic portions 150. In this case, some of the section plates 170 are not connected to the stator core 10 and only the remaining section plates 170 are connected to the stator core 10.

Although the structure in which the elastic portion 150 is coupled with all the section plates 170 is not applied, the vibration insulating function may be sufficient and therefore some of the section plates 170 may be configured to have the simple structure. It is possible to improve the manufacturing performance and secure the price competitiveness by the simplification of the structure.

The various exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure, which is described as above and shown in the drawings, should not be interpreted as limiting the technical spirit of the present disclosure. The scope of the present invention is limited only by matters set forth in the claims and those skilled in the art can modify and change the technical subjects of the present invention in various forms. Therefore, as long as these improvements and changes are apparent to those skilled in the art, they are included in the protective scope of the present invention.
