Liquid Fuel System Technical Information – Model C30 MicroTurbine

Introduction

This document provides technical information for Capstone Turbine Corporation® Model C30 MicroTurbine systems operating on kerosene and low-grade diesel fuels. Liquid fuel systems have multiple applications in remote locations where grid power may be unavailable, such as offshore oil, or stand alone heating applications. Refer to the MicroTurbine Fuel Requirements Technical Reference (410002) for additional information on fuel requirements.

Liquid Fuel System injector modifications and software design have resulted in increased combustion stability, allowing operation at levels as low as 0 kW. This lower operating level allows the MicroTurbine to recharge the battery in Stand Alone mode. In addition, the software-driven auto-priming linefill sequence improves start reliability by eliminating the undesirable presence of excess air in fuel system components and fuel lines connecting to the MicroTurbine. This extends the service life of the components such as the fuel pump (increased lubrication) and the igniter (reduced failed starts).

Major components of the liquid fuel system are shown in the block diagram below. START AIR
