Technical Reference Capstone Model C30 Performance

Introduction

This document presents performance information for the Capstone Turbine Corporation Capstone (recuperated) Model C30 MicroTurbine operating on natural gas (B Range) fuel.

The Capstone Model C30 MicroTurbine system is a compact, low emission, power generator providing up to 30 kW of electrical power. The Model C30 MicroTurbine generates electricity from various fuels with low exhaust emissions. Solid-state power electronics allow Grid Connect, Stand Alone, or HEV operation.

ISO Full Load Performance

Performance is listed at full load power and ISO conditions for the Capstone Model C30 MicroTurbine operating on natural gas (B Range) fuel, as defined in the Capstone MicroTurbine Fuel Requirements Technical Reference 410002. ISO conditions are defined as: 15 °C (59 °F), 60% relative humidity, and 101.325 kPa (14.696 psia) (standard sea level pressure). Other items are defined as: HHV: Higher Heating Value, LHV: Lower Heating Value, HPNG: High Pressure Natural Gas, and LPNG: Low Pressure Natural Gas.

Table 1 presents the (recuperated) Model C30 MicroTurbine performance for HPNG, LPNG, and Liquid Fuel applications.
