Hey all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If we are given a synchronous generator with the following nameplate values 10MVA, 13.8kV, 2 pole, 60 Hz

why is it not sufficient to go

[tex]S_{RATED}=I_{RATED}V_{RATED}[/tex]

as we did for transformers?

My reason for asking is because I am trying to determine the voltage regulation of a particular generator. However, if I determine the full load current using the above formula, I get an absurd result.
