Generators for Special Applications

  • Short-circuit Generators

  • Synchronous Condenser

  • Generators for MG set



Using technologies developed in turbine generators for thermal power plants, Mitsubishi Power is able to design and manufacture generators for special applications.

Mitsubishi Power has established a track record of delivering short-circuit generators to research institutions and manufacturers. These generators intentionally produce short circuits and utilize the large currents produced by short circuits as a way to test and verify electrical equipment.

Synchronous condensers use generators to control reactive power with the aim of contributing to system stability.

MG (Motor-Generator) set is used as a variable-speed power source for the recirculation pump of a nuclear reactor, enabling safe shutdown of the reactor in the event of a power loss.
