ABSTRACT On the basis of expounding the corrosion mechanism of the stator hollow copper conductor in the water-cooling generator, methods of preventing corrosion of the stator hollow copper conductor in the wa-ter-cooling generator through adjusting water quality of its cooling water have been proposed. For internal water cooling systems which are airtight, the corrosion of the hollow copper conductor can be prevented through keeping foreign oxygen and carbon dioxide from entering the system, and the amount of oxygen in the internal water can be lowered by blowing high purity nitrogen. For systems not airtight, the corrosion of the hollow copper conductor can be inhibited through lowering the amount of oxygen to some extent by sealing and increasing pH value by processing part of cooling water with bypass small flow sodium-type mix-bed.
