Analysis, modeling, improvements and tests of those components will be performed in order to maxi- mize total efficiency of the electromechanical conversion within the micro-CHP system.<br/><br/>Figure 3: Electrical components of the micro-CHP system.<br/><br/>Solutions<br/><br/>Efficient operation of the gas turbine imposes the demand for very high rotational speed of the generator - 240,000 rpm. The perma- nent magnet machine has been chosen as the generator type since this technology is the most promising for high-speed machines: it of- fers high efficiency and very high power density at low volumes. A high-frequency power converter is required to enable bi-directional power flow between the generator and grid.<br/><br/>Acknowledgments<br/><br/>This research is being conducted at Eindhoven University of Tech- nology, within the Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE) group of the Department of Electrical Engineering, and at Micro Tur- bine Technology BV (MTT) in Eindhoven.<br/><br/>/ Department of Electrical Engineering - Electromechanics and Power Electronics<br/><br/></span></TD><TD valign='top'><p>Image | Electromechanical aspects of a micro-CHP system</p><BR><BR><img src='../images/electromechanical-aspects-micro-chp-system-001.jpg' alt='electromechanical-aspects-micro-chp-system ' style='margin-left:20px;border-style:solid;border-width:1px;border-color:black;'> </TD></TR></TABLE><table border=1px solid blackstyle =width:50%> <tr> <td><b>Capstone Turbine For Sale </b>- Microturbine C30 C65 C200 C600 C800 C1000 - <a href="http://www.globalmicroturbine.com">Go to microturbine website</a> </td> </tr> </tr> </table> <p> </p> <script> (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga'); ga('create', 'UA-85515761-1', 'auto'); ga('send', 'pageview'); </script><address> <p>Search Engine Contact: <a href="mailto:greg@globalmicroturbine.com?subject="Microturbine">greg@globalmicroturbine.com</a></p><p><br /></p></body></html>
