A very small turbine, fueled by natural gas or some other energy source, that generates electricity for use in homes or commercial establishments.
As an electricity generation technology, a small combustion turbine that produces between 25 kW and 500 kW of power.
a combination of a small gas turbine and a direct-driven generator, both mounted on the same shaft
a compact turbine generator that delivers electricity close to the point where it is needed
a very small device used to make electricity, fuelled by natural gas or some other energy source
A very small combustion turbine, individually of the size of a refrigerator, that are often packaged in multiunit systems. In most configurations, the microturbine is a single-shaft machine with the compressor and turbine mounted on the same shaft as the electric generator. With a single rotating shaft, gearboxes and associated parts are eliminated, helping to improve manufacturing costs and operational reliability. The rather high rotational speeds vary in the range from 50,000 to 120,000 revolutions per minute (rpm), depending on the output capacity of the microturbine. This high-frequency output is first rectified and then converted to 50 or 60 Hz. Microturbines are capable of burning a number of fuels at high- and low-pressure levels, including natural gas, waste (sour) gas, landfill gas, or propane. ( Picture)
A small turbine that burns fuel (such as natural gas, propane, diesel, ethanol, or biogas) to generate electricity. A heat recovery unit can be added so that the waste heat in its exhaust can also be utilized.
a small-scale gas turbine generation system to combust gas and generate electricity
