Small, Lightweight, Versatile Power Source for Commercial and Industrial Power Needs Microturbines are small combustion turbines that create high-speed rotation that turns an electrical generator. Individual units range from 30 to 400kW. Microturbines are ideally suited to combined heat and power (CHP) applica- tions due to their installation flexibility, ability to serve larger loads, ability to provide stable and reliable power, and low emissions.

Although similar to a reciprocating engine-driven generator (in that both provide power directly to a facility), the microturbine can generate power continuously with very low emissions. The typical microturbine has relatively few moving parts, higher reliability, significantly longer maintenance intervals, and a longer operating life, offering extended operation of 8,000 hours between scheduled service and

an operating life as much as ten times greater than a conventional generator set.

Microturbines were derived from turbocharger technologies found in large trucks or the turbines in aircraft auxiliary power units (APUs). Most microturbines are single-stage, radial flow devices with high rotating speeds of 90,000

to 120,000 revolutions per minute. However, a few manufac- turers have developed alternative systems with multiple stages and/or lower rotation speeds. Microturbine systems are capable of producing power at around 25-35% efficiency by employing a recuperator that transfers exhaust heat back into the incoming air stream. Efficiencies generally decrease

Facilities that may benefit from Microturbines include:

> Office buildings

> Retail stores

> Municipal facilities

> Schools and public buildings

> Small industrial and commercial facilities

> Surgery Centers

> Health clubs
