Technical Reference Battery Performance


This document presents information on Capstone Model C30 and Model C60/C65 battery life expectancy and battery performance in Stand Alone applications. The battery has an integral function in all aspects of MicroTurbine operation from start-up to shut down, as well as DC bus support.

In Stand Alone operation, the primary functions of the battery are:

• Provide power during onload transients

• Accept power during offload transients

• Provide power while starting and stopping the MicroTurbine

• Provide power during standby state.

Battery life expectancy is dependent on several factors including operating and storage temperature, the number of charge and discharge cycles, number of transients (and their interval), and internal/external loads such as fuel compressors. These life factors will be examined as they relate to Model C30/C60/C65 configurations in the sections that follow.

Battery performance is tied to regularly scheduled maintenance and equalization charging to optimize battery life and ensure that the battery performs as designed. Refer to the Capstone Standard Maintenance Schedule Work Instruction (440000) for information on regular maintenance schedule intervals. Refer to the Stand Alone Operation Technical Reference (410028) for instructions on battery pack equalization charging.
