Addressing a field which, until now, has not been sufficiently investigated, Essentials of Natural Gas Microturbines thoroughly examines several natural gas microturbine technologies suitable not only for distributed generation but also for the automotive industry. An invaluable resource for power systems, electrical, and computer science engineers as well as operations researchers, microturbine operators, policy makers, and other industry professionals, the book: Explains the importance of natural gas microturbines and their use in distributed energy resource (DER) systems Discusses the history, development, design, and operation of gas microturbines Introduces the Evolutionary Algorithm for pollutant emissions and fuel consumption minimization Analyzes the power electronics for grid connection of natural gas microturbines Includes actual power quality measurementsa€”graphical representations and numerical dataa€”from a real system Contains 39 color figures Readers benefit from the clarity and practicality of Essentials of Natural Gas Microturbines, ultimately learning new techniques to increase electrical load efficiency, keep the environment cleaner, and improve equipment exploitation based on mathematical results.As will be discussed in the next chapters, this kind of equipment is based on three key components: the engine, which ... From a historical point of view, gas turbines having a power range between 25 and 400 kW were first used during the 1950s and 1960s as car engines by manufacturers such as RoverAr, Leyland Motor Corporation LimitedAr (a subsidiary of Rover), ... has been much improved, making this kind of equipment more viable and more accessible to end users [ Moo02].
