New Paralleling Capabilities For Doosan NG Gen-Sets
By Mike Brezonick19 January 2016
Doosan Portable Power, Statesville, NC, has introduced paralleling capabilities for its NG225 (223 kVA/178 kW) and NG295 (296 kVA/237 kW) natural gas generator models.
Paralleling natural gas generators are especially applicable for use in oil and gas exploration, site preparation and water well drilling where remote locations, emissions regulations and 24-hour production schedules pose challenges for operators, Doosan said. Paralleling multiple natural gas units together is a means for avoiding downtime while still achieving acceptable emissions levels by consuming wellhead natural gas as a fuel source.
Doosan Portable Power natural gas generators utilize a factory-installed paralleling solution that is built into the machine design. The units include a new control panel and electronically controlled circuit breaker that ensures the machines communicate, bringing the units into synchronization without risk of system failure or machine damage that can occur when paralleling conditions are not precisely met, Doosan said.
Doosan Portable Power natural gas generators are equipped with an automatic dual-fuel switch, allowing the generator to operate on natural gas, as well as propane from an external tank. This ensures continuous operation in the event that wellhead gas flow is interrupted or unavailable.
Operators can select 50 Hz or 60 Hz, with the simple flip of a switch, and choose between 480 volts and 600 volts alternator output.
