In recent years, modern precision manufacturing techniques and design methods have substantially improved the performance of micro-turbine generators (MTG). Compared to conventional generators, micro-turbine power sources are much smaller and portable. Microturbine generators are also proving to be more efficient, easier to maintain, and more environmentally friendly with fewer emissions. Although power generators running on microturbines can use various types of energy sources, Micro-turbine Generators brings together a wide range of engineering experience to describe the emergence of micro-turbine technology, its viability and its future potential.
