Hydrogen Cooled Generators

​​​Dry hydrogen is used to cool electric generators because of its high thermal conductivity and low viscosity. An increase in the level of moisture in the hydrogen may lead to a decrease in cooling efficiency, a reduction in insulation capability and corrosion of generator parts with the worst outcome being a total breakdown of the generator. Vaisala’s intrinsically safe humidity and temperature transmitter sensors are ideal for monitoring dryer performance.
