Research Directions:Prof. Gu has been engaging in the development of the new evaporative cooling technology of large generator for a long term. The evaporative cooling technology in normal temperature (60 ¡æ about) was independently innovated and the self circulating evaporative cooling system without pump has been applied in hydro-generators. He has researched the heat transfer characteristics of all kinds of coolant in the condition of two-phase boiling¡¢the physical and chemical characteristic and electric insulation characteristic. He has combined the subject of generator with that of the heat transfer in boiling two-phase fluid and a cross subject design theory system has been shaped.
