Many facilities oversize their generators for peak load condition. However, these generators on average, operate at much lower loads. The effect of these lower loads cause “wetstacking”, which is sometimes referred to as “slobber” due to leakage from the exhaust manifold joints. A condition which is easily remedied by operating gensets at higher load efficiencies.
ECO-H allows facility managers to size gensets for base load operations and have the peaks addressed with the instantaneous response of the on-board stored energy. This method drastically reduces capital costs of the genset packages.
Facility power management solution is optimized by conducting a three step analysis; total facility loads, load step evaluation and finally the optimal genset selection. This results savings in shipping costs, installation costs, operational & maintenance costs.
