GPS-200 Genset Fuels (Gas vs. Diesel) NEW for 2018!
May 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic overview of the elements to consider when selecting the fuel type for a standby or emergency generator. The seminar begins with a discussion of the historic & present market division between diesel and gas generators. Further discussion delves into the reliability of both types of fuel, with a detailed analysis of the pros and cons for each. A review of gas engine technology shows the differences between gas & diesel engines, along with emissions concerns and treatments. Installation requirements for gas types (nat. gas & propane) are reviewed. Canadian code requirements are considered. Finally, total cost of ownership review provides the economics of each choice.
Each seminar was designed specifically for practicing engineers who wish to expand their understanding of current technologies, sizing, codes & standards, switching technologies and reliable design characteristics surrounding emergency power systems. If you are a design, sales or consulting engineer, this series is for you. It’s a joint effort of the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) and Generac Power Systems.
