Book_Large_Synchronous_MachinesInspection of Large Synchronous Machines: checklists, failure identification, and troubleshooting (1996)
By Isidor Kerszenbaum

Gain an understanding of the inspection of large synchronous machines, generators,
condensers, and motors! This text describes each component of the machine, operational functions, typical design features, and tell-tale signs that indicate each
mode of failure. Compact with photos, graphs, commonly-used inspection forms, along with extensive references for each topic, it is an excellent tool for operators, inspectors, and student engineers. Sponsored by IEEE Power Engineering Society.





Large Turbo Generator Malfunction and Symptoms (2016) By Dr. Isidor Kerszenbaum and Geoff Klempner

This book presents a comprehensive, ordered relationship between malfunctions and symptoms occurring turbogenerators. With this book, the operator and/or engineer in a generating station could identify underlying causes of a developing component degradation or a failure quicker, which could potentially save both time and money and reduce the trial-and-error troubleshooting process.
