Compared to conventional gas turbine genera- tors, microturbines typically have lower electric generation capacities (30 to 500 kW versus more than 1 MW), lower pressure ratios (about 4 versus 8 to 10), radial- ow designs (versus axial- ow designs), and incorporate recuperators (versus typically unrecuperated designs). Microturbines are promoted as lightweight, compact, low noise/vibration, low emissions, and fuel-flexible compared to compet- ing DG technologies such as internal-combustion-engine generators.<br/><br/>Characteristics and Development Status<br/><br/>Figure 1 depicts a schematic of a typical microturbine integrated with a CHP system that provides power, heating, and cooling. The compressor section raises air pressure to about four atmospheres and the air then enters a recuperator that preheats the air using turbine exhaust. Subsequently, the heated air enters the combustor, where pressurized fuel is injected and burned. Since commercial buildings are typically supplied with low-pressure natural gas, a compressor generally is needed to pressurize the gas prior to injection. After combus- tion, the exhaust products enter the turbine, which provides shaft power to the compressor and a generator. The generator typically produces high-frequency power that is converted to<br/><br/>Advertisement formerly in this space.<br/><br/>48 ASHRAE Journal ashrae.org April 2007<br/><br/></span></TD><TD valign='top'><p>Image | Emerging Technologies Using Microturbines </p><BR><BR><img src='../images/emerging-technologies-using-microturbines--001.jpg' alt='emerging-technologies-using-microturbines- ' 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>
