  1. 1. Reciprocating Engines Vic Ranalletta, P.E. Senior Project Manager Burns & McDonnell
  2. 2. What Provides the Following? • 10 MW • 20-40% Capacity Factor • Good Part Load Heat Rate a t oad eat ate • Black Start • 5 Mi Minute S Start • Reactive Power and Frequency Support q y pp
  3. 3. Natural Gas Engine Generators Caterpillar 6 5 MW 6.5 Wärtsilä 8.4 – 9.3 MW Mitsubishi 3.6 – 5.5 MW
  4. 4. Why Do We Need Recip Engines? The sun doesn’t always shine and d the wind doesn’t always blow.
