• List three properties of hydrogen which make it the efficient gas to use for industrial generator cooling purposes

• Describe how a generator is purged of hydrogen gas using carbon dioxide gas

• Identify hydrogen monitoring systems commonly found in power generation facilities

• Discuss why a seal oil system is required for a hydrogen-cooled generator

• Identify the parts of a stator cooling system commonly found in power generation facilities

• Define the term isolated-phase bus and discuss steps to cool it
