Rotating converter sets

7500 kVA motor-generator set

MENZEL recently delivered a 7500 kVA motor-generator set for a transformer test field. The system weighing a total of 60 tons is currently being shipped to Egypt where Menzel will see through its commission.

Menzel especially configured the rotary converter set for this application and supplied it completely from a single source.

One single source for the complete generator set

The 7500 kVA synchronous generator and the 2300 kW squirrel-cage motor are Menzel products featuring high efficiency and great robustness. The frequency converters and transformers come from reliable partner companies and the control cabinets are supplied by Pawils Elektromaschinenbau, a member of the Menzel Group.

The scope of delivery also includes various auxiliary drives, for example for forced fans, an oil supply system with a pump for lubricating the generator bearings, a coupling, and numerous small parts. A special requirement was that the generator must work in 3-phase as well as 1-phase operation; Menzel planned a single to three phase switch for this purpose especially.
