Gas engine with up to 44,3% electrical efficiency
Ignition systems for individual cylinders allow for the most efficient level of operation for all cylinders, even with variable CH4 content. The ignition voltage display gives customers information about the state of the spark plugs.
The well proven design perfectly suits the genset and provides the basis for optimized auxiliary efficiencies. The unit is fully integrated in the automation concept and is safe and certified (CE).
Optimally tailored to the engine and made by renowned manufacturers, the generator ensures a high level of reliability with the best degree of efficiency.
Motor interface panel (MIP) with stand-alone MTU Module Control (MMC). The MMC provides all the functions necessary for controlling the system. All the auxiliary drives required for the CHP system can be operated from here. The integrated power circuitry minimizes the customer’s need for cabling on site.
Cylinder-specific knock detection and regulation protect the engine from abnormal operating conditions, and guarantee safe operation even with natural gas containing low levels of methane.

The natural gas power genset is based on the successful 4000 series with a power range 776 to 2.530, and has been optimized for hot and humid environment conditions. Optimized features, high flexibility, and intelligently coordinated components set new standards for power and performance.
