Product Specification Models C600, C800, and C1000 Capstone MicroTurbine


This Product Specification describes the Capstone MicroTurbine Models C600, C800, and C1000 power generating systems. Capstone MicroTurbines provide on-site electrical power for primary or standby applications, for peak shaving, base loading, and/or capacity additions. MicroTurbines may generate power in parallel with an electrical utility (Grid Connect mode), or isolated from the utility (Stand Alone mode). MicroTurbine exhaust heat can be recovered for use in industrial processes or in building heating and cooling systems to decrease building energy demands and increase total system efficiency. The MicroTurbine consists of a turbine engine, solid-state power electronics, a fuel system, and an indoor/outdoor-rated NEMA 3R enclosure and is available in high humidity, high wind, high seismic and stackable configurations.

Major turbine engine components include a compressor, a recuperator (exhaust gas heat exchanger), a combustor, a turbine, and a generator. The turbine engine is air-cooled and supported on air-lubricated compliant foil bearings. The compressor impeller, turbine rotor, and generator rotor are mounted on a single shaft, which comprises the only moving part in the engine. Power electronics are solid-state, double conversion type, producing three-phase alternating current output power from the high-frequency alternating current engine output.

The C600, C800, and C1000 packages are similar in size and dimensions to an ISO container with a length of 30 feet. The container has five separate internally isolated compartments with louvered access doors. Three 200 kW power modules are used in the C600, four in the C800, and five in the C1000. C600 and C800 units can be up-rated in increments of 200 kW with the addition of aftermarket 200 kW power module kits from Capstone. These upgrades can be used to meet future power demands or to add redundancy to an existing system.

The multiple power module configurations of the C600, C800, and C1000 makes the units inherently redundant, enabling the Capstone C1000 to provide better availability than other energy generation technologies in this size range. The unit controller provided with this product line includes modes that maximize system efficiency at lower power output levels and balances the running hours of the constituent power modules, better aligning system routine maintenance needs.
