Tech/Engineering - Energy / Power Generation / generator
English term or phrase: low speed hold points
Startup of a hydrogen cooled generator in air is significantly harder on the generator due to the reduced heat transfer properties of air.
For this reason **any low speed hold points** typical of those associated with Water Wash, Purge and HRSG Warmup must be eliminated

use at low speeds for extended periods
Explanation:
I don't know much about hydrogen cooled generators but logically, since startup (inevitably involving low speeds) is hard on the generator, low speeds are generally to be avoided, and extended running ("holding") at low speeds should be eliminated.
