ABB has contributed significantly for the development of electrical machines and motors for industrial and infrastructure application in its 125 years of business. The electrical machines are subjected to various types of stresses such as electrical, mechanical, thermal, and chemical. The company's 125 years of development has focused on customer's need for more reliable and cost-effective machines. The company has also developed very efficient systems such as hydrogen-cooling and direct water-cooling systems, used for very large machines. The electrical machines developed by ABB are more cost-effective with an increased specific output. The largest synchronous motor built by the company is rated at 55MW. ABB has also launched a radically different type of synchronous generator for very high voltages and is aimed to develop electrical machines with superconducting excitation windings.
