A New Era In Power Generation Flexibility
Reduce costs, improve efficiency, provide redundancy – the advantages are many with the Generac Modular Power System. Historically, combining multiple gensets was a complicated business requiring expensive paralleling switchgear. The Modular Power System (MPS) combines smaller diesel gensets in a side-by-side, parallel arrangement, using integrated automatic transfer switches and switchgear, scaling up output at a significantly lower cost than using traditional non-integrated switchgear. Individual combined units can vary in output rating, which allows the system design to more closely match load requirements than single unit applications.
The cost savings compared even with utilizing a single large genset – including the integrated paralleling switch technology – is typically 20% – 30%, and in some cases can even be greater. Furthermore, because the modular generators can be operated individually or together, the MPS has flexibility and adaptability not found in single unit applications.
