Product notes

What is the AMG marine generator?

The AMG marine generator is a state-of-theart synchronous generator for demanding
applications in marine power plants.
It has been designed to comply with the
requirements of the classification societies and
to meet customer needs.
Advanced design methods (3D design,
FEM simulation), combined with extensive
experience as an alternator manufacturer, have
enabled ABB to optimize the electrical and
mechanical performance to meet customer
Longstanding working relationships with the
leading piston engine manufacturers provide a
solid basis for smooth integration of alternatorengine sets.
Vacuum pressure impregnation (VPI) of
the complete winding system gives it the
strength necessary to meet all the mechanical
and electrical stresses encountered during
operation. This strength, combined with the
rigid construction of the rotor with salient
poles, makes AMG marine generators very

Customized integration to the

power system
The most common application for the AMG
marine generators is in engine-generator sets,
where the generator is mounted with a piston
engine and thereby forms part of the vessels
power plant. They are always dimensioned
according to customer specifications.
Reactance levels are tuned to the customers
needs to match the short-circuit capability of
the switchboard and requirements regarding
voltage variations.
AMG Marine Generators are also available
for shaft generator applications, either direct
driven or coupled to a gear box.
