Model C60/C65 Dual Mode – Fast Transfer

Introduction

Capstone MicroTurbinesTM are prime power generators, producing high quality, commercial- grade electric power in an energy dense, small footprint. Capstone MicroTurbines' clean exhaust and co-generation capabilities allow installation close to a load with complete control at the customer’s fingertips. These characteristics allow for low installed cost, quick start-up and low maintenance costs.

MicroTurbines can be used to produce power with a Utility grid (Grid Connect), to work as a Stand Alone generator, or a combination of both – referred to by Capstone as “Dual Mode” functionality. Due to their design versatility, they can be applied in a variety of applications. They are currently used to provide continuous power to hotels, grocery stores, oil-field processing equipment, schools and office buildings, as well as highly-reliable off-grid power to data centers, telecom equipment and protected manufacturing processes.

This Application Guide explains the performance and switching logic between Grid Connect and Stand Alone modes of operation for the Capstone C60/C65 and C60/C65 ICHP Dual Mode MicroTurbines with firmware version 4.50 or higher, which includes the ability for “Fast Transfer” between Grid Connect and Stand Alone operating modes. This document also describes operation of the Dual Mode Controller in combination with the C60/C65 to achieve Fast Transfer. Refer to the Capstone Dual Mode Controller Technical Reference 410039 (Rev D or higher), and DMC Field Re-work Instruction 440123, which documents the latest construction required for Fast Transfer.
