Procedures for winding synchronous poles
One of the many interesting things we get to do as repairers of rotating electrical equipment is to rewind the rotating poles of synchronous machines. Handling large poles can present special challenges, but the actual winding process itself can be downright enjoyable—if we are adequately prepared. This article will outline procedures that take the mystery out of successful pole winding. The procedures are also helpful for stationary field coils and interpoles.
