4-18 Chapter 4 Terminal Board I/O and Equipment Connections
Excitation systems, which produce a dc voltage from an ac supply through a solid
state rectification process, cause ripple and spike voltages at the exciter output. Due
to their rapid rise and decay times these voltages are capacitively coupled from the
field winding to the rotor body. This creates a voltage on the shaft relative to ground
that, if not effectively controlled, can damage both journals and bearings. The shaft
voltage suppressor is a filter that conducts the high frequency components of the
induced voltages to ground and limits shaft voltage caused by thyristor commutation
to less than 7 V zero to peak. For the connections to the field, refer to Figure 4-11.
