TM (Enclosed and Recuperated) Summary

This Product Specification describes the Capstone MicroTurbine power generating system (hereafter referred to by Capstone as a MicroTurbine). The MicroTurbine provides on-site electrical power for primary or standby applications, and for peak shaving, base loading, and/or capacity additions. MicroTurbine(s) may generate power in parallel with an electrical utility (Grid Connect mode), or isolated from the utility (Stand Alone mode). The system consists of a turbine engine, solid-state power electronics, a fuel system, and an indoor/outdoor-rated enclosure.

MicroTurbine systems are available in 30, 60, or 65 kW versions, known as C30, C60 or C65 models. The C60 and C65 have an option to include a top-mounted heat exchanger, marketed by Capstone as the Integrated Combined Heat and Power package (ICHP). The ICHP option includes an exhaust heat recovery unit and exhaust diverter to allow full or partial recovery of exhaust energy. This allows the user to realize high total system efficiency with respect to incoming fuel energy, while providing economical operation and operational flexibility.

Major MicroTurbine components include a compressor, a recuperator (exhaust gas heat exchanger), a combustor, a turbine, and a generator. The turbine engine is air-cooled and supported on air-lubricated compliant foil bearings. The compressor impeller, turbine rotor, and generator rotor are mounted on a single shaft, which comprises the only moving part in the engine. Power electronics are solid-state, double conversion type, producing three-phase alternating current output power from the high-frequency alternating current engine output.
