In addition to the higher centrifugal forces during normal operation in 3600 rpm, a generator rotor body is subjected to the contact pressures from shrink-fit between generator rotor and retaining ring. To obtain the structural reliability and life assessment of the generator, the finite element models were developed and structural analyses were carried out. The stress distributions and the critical locations of the rotor body were identified. Further, the fatigue life is performed to estimate the remaining life of generator, The critical crack size and probability of failure are also evaluated based on the analysis results. The critical sizes of a crack of generator are predicted using linear elastic fracture mechanics. These results will be applied to the development of a larger 1000MW capacity generator.
