  • 1. MicroTurbines andCHP: AnOwnersPerspective Apex Engineering, P.C. 36 West 37th Street, Penthouse New York, NY 10018 Tel.(646)449-0383 Fax. (646)449-0384 E-mail: engineers@apexengineeringpc.com 1
  • 2.  The simultaneous production of two forms of useful energy from a single fuel source  Combined heat and Power (CHP)  CHP = DG + Heat Recovery Stack Heat Transfer Exhaust StackMicro Turbine or Engine Heat or Cooling to BuildingNatural Gas Absorption Chiller or Boiler Generator or Inverter Electric Power 2
  • 3. 7’ High 10’ Long3’ Wide Weighs 4,000 Turbine assembly weighs 200 lbs lbs  Small, light, self-contained Power Plant: 60 – 250 kW per MT – depending on Vendor  Fueled (primarily) by Natural Gas – but very flexible  Reliable, quiet and clean-burning  Similar to jet engine  Value Proposition: improves Environment, Economics and Security/Reliability, Grid Independence 3
  • 4. Heat for Absorption Chillers, Boilers, and DHW Heaters Electric Output Recuperator Battery Fuel Inverter Combustor Rectifier 68 k RPM TurbineGeneratorand Starter Air Intake Compressor 4
  • 5.  Qty (1) 100 kW Micro Turbine – Electric Grid expandable to 2 or more MT’s: MT in Building parallel with Electric Grid Electric  Controls: export power capable Future Load  Diesel Genset Export  Commissioning Power  5-Year Service Agreement  Utilization of Waste Heat: Absorption Control Box Chillers, Boilers, and DHW Heaters  Continuous Monitoring and Control of Micro Turbine via Internet by EnergyStandby-Backup Integrator Diesel Genset MT Genset Future export of Diesel Genset Power via GPC, Internet andMT Turbine Exhaust to Boilers Natural Gas Grid Internet Smart Grid 5
  • 6.  Economics Environment Flexibility SecuritySecurity: In the event of a debilitating event to central utility plants orpower transmission systems, CHP can operate as an independent andsustainable system. 6
  • 7. Utility Electric increased 4.2% on average in 2009 Savings @ $.10/kWh: 22% NYC Savings @ $.22/kWh: 49% 10% of Installed Cost of CHP Qualifies for Grant from American Recovery ActUtility Gas decreased in 20% in 2009Chicago Savings @ $.6 per therm:22%Chicago Savings @ $.5 per therm:29%US Gas Reserves increased 35%: 7first increase of any kind in 44 years
  • 8. MT CHP = Micro Turbine Combined Heat & Powe  Traditional Power Plant Delivers 33% of Input Energy  MT CHP Delivers 50% + 30% = 80% of Input Energy 50% Traditional Power Thermal  Plant Requires 2.42100% 30% X’s as much Energy: 80/33 ElectricFuel 8
  • 9. Prior to these technology advancements, turbines were •Simple Application •Low Cost customized engineering projects that Heat •Highly efficient required coordinated design efforts Exchanger between electrical and mechanical engineers: very large, expensive and •Voltage Regulation difficult to maintain. Today’s •Parallel Operation technology is DG IN A BOX! Power •One Moving Part: low Electronics maintenance OIL HEAT INTAKE RECUPERATOR EXCHANGER WITH FAN SILENCER HEAT EXCHANGER •Small FootprintPOWERELECTRONICS •Low Cost Internal Gas •Low pressure: 3 PSI to comply ELECTRIC ACTUATOR Compressor with Rule 50 COOLING FAN GAS COMPRESSOR 9
  • 10.  Compelling NYC Economics Backing of City/State/Fed Government Positive Environmental Impact NYC Utility Grids are “Max-ed Out” Increased Security & Reliability Advancement of Technology NYSERDA Incentives 10
