Title: BEARING ASSEMBLY FOR ELECTRICAL GENERATOR
Abstract:
A bearing assembly for an electrical generator includes a frame (102), a bearing liner (104) and a ring (106). The frame (102) is configured to connect with a housing of an electrical generator. The frame (102) includes a frame opening (114) and is made from a first material. The bearing liner (104) connects with the frame (102). The bearing liner (104) is made from a second material, which is dissimilar from the first material. At least a portion of the bearing liner (104) passes through the frame opening (114). The ring (106) surrounds the bearing liner (104). The ring (106) contacts the frame (102) and the bearing liner (104) and maintains a clearance between the portion of the bearing liner (104) passing through the frame opening (114) and the frame (102).
