High Voltage Stator Windings Manufactured at NEC's Brownsville Facility
Caption:"Above – Left: Some or all conductors in inner water-cooled bars 
are hollow copper tubes. Example cross section is from a General 
Electric 200,535 kVA, *13.8 kV*, 3600 RPM unit.
Right: Non-conductive hollow steel tubes are used with inner gas-cooled 
bars. Cross sections are from: (L) Westinghouse 493,280 kVA, *24 kV*, 
3600 RPM inner hydrogen-cooled unit, (C) Westinghouse 209,000 kVA, *13.8 
kV*, 3600 RPM unit inner hydrogen-cooled unit and (R) Westinghouse 
159,000 kVA, 13.8 kV, 3600 RPM inner air-cooled unit.
