INDUSTRY FOCUS: ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION

We are pulling together a comprehensive set of online tools to help our customers and business partners. Let us know if there is a resource you'd like us to include.

GAS GENERATOR TECHNOLOGY

GAS GENERATOR TECHNOLOGYWe know you don’t want to have to search for the information you need. We also know that you want to learn more about technologies that are becoming more prevalent in today’s power generation environment. That’s why we’d like to introduce you to two papers about gas engine technology. If the summaries below pique your interest, download the entire document and see how we’re built to give you the information you need.

GENERATOR SIZING SOFTWARE

GENERATOR SIZING SOFTWAREElectric Power SpecSizer software from Cat Electric Power provides accurate and timely technical data, robust load models, and optimized algorithms to assist in specifying a properly sized generator set to best meet your power needs.

SKVA AND MOTOR STARTING

SKVA AND MOTOR STARTINGGenerator sets are typically evaluated on the basis of their ability to start electric motors and accelerate them to rated speed. Although there is a generally accepted standard for this measurement, some manufacturers refer to a standard based on sustained voltage dip, while other industry leaders measure the instantaneous voltage dip. Since there is no direct relationship between sustained and instantaneous voltage dip, a comparison between the two may be misleading. Below is an explanation.

UNDERSTANDING GENERATOR SET RATINGS

UNDERSTANDING GENERATOR SET RATINGSGenerator set ratings may seem complex, but their basic purpose is simple: fit the customer’s needs at the optimum reliability, performance, and cost. An improper rating means a customer either buys more capacity than needed or risks shorter life to overhaul, more repairs, and more downtime. Read more to learn how smart rating choices combined with the latest in onsite power generation systems can help engineers match equipment to their customers’ applications for optimal long-term performance.

USING COGENERATION IN YOUR FACILITY

USING COGENERATION IN YOUR FACILITYCogeneration using on-site energy content can present significant energy cost savings. The energy to transport electricity to your facility, while convenient, can have a high delivery cost. With energy costs on the rise, it may be time to look at better usage of fuels you currently have on site.
