Glossary of Terms and Acronyms

The following is a list of standard terms, acronyms, and definitions used at Capstone. Refer to this document for understanding the terms used in the technology, features and any documentation associated with the Capstone MicroTurbine systems.

10Base-2 (10B2) – An Ethernet standard that uses a thin coaxial cable with BNC T-connectors and a maximum data rate of 10 megabits/second. Also called Thin Ethernet, ThinWire Ethernet, and ThinNet.

10Base-T (10BT) – An Ethernet standard that uses a twisted-pair cable, RJ-45 connectors, and a. maximum data rate of 10 megabits/second.

100Base-T (100BT) – A high-speed twisted pair Ethernet (also called Fast Ethernet) that uses RJ-45 connectors and a maximum data rate of 100 megabits/second.

AC – Alternating Current.

ACFM – Actual cubic feet per minute flow at operating temperature and pressure.

ACM – Ambient Climate Module on Model C60 MicroTurbine. It contains ambient pressure reading and passes ambient temperature reading from TCIN sensor to ECM.

ADC – Analog-to-Digital-Converter.


AFR – Air Fuel Ratio. The ratio, on a mass basis, of air to fuel in the gas mixture that is burned in the combustor. This ratio will vary according to operating requirements such as load demand.

AGA – American Gas Association.

AIR INTAKE ASSEMBLY – Assembly that directs engine intake airflow into the MicroTurbine. May contain sound attenuating material to reduce high frequency noise signature; a filter is housed in the assembly to provide filtered air to the MicroTurbine generator.

ALC – Auxiliary Load Controller.

AMPERE (AMP) – The unit of measurement of the current produced in a circuit by one (1) volt acting through a resistance of one (1) ohm. The measure of the rate of flow of electrons past a given point in an electric conductor.

ANSI – American National Standards Institute.
