A New Era In Power Generation Flexibility
Reduce cost, improved efficiency, faster installation and commissioning, redundancy- the advantages are many with the Generac Modular Power System (MPS). Historically speaking, paralleling gensets was a complicated business requiring expensive controls and switchgear. The Modular Power System combines smaller genset nodes in a parallel arrangement, using integrated controls and switching in a factory tested solution. When demand grows scaling up output is easy and at a significantly lower cost than using traditional non-integrated switchgear. The individual nodes in the MPS system can vary in kW rating, which allows the system design to more closely match load demand or growth. The nodes can also use different fuels allowing even greater redundancy levels if needed.
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.
