The 50MWe is our base module for all power stations and Community Energy Centres, each consists of three air turbine and generator modules, each producing a single phase output of 17MWe. The three individual phases are combined at the output stage into 3 phase output. Therefore for a 200MWE output we combine 4x Standard 50MWe Power Modules and for a 250MWe power station we combine 5x 50MWe standard Power modules running in parallel.
The whole Power Station is delivered to site containerised and based on 'plug and play' principles it is ready to operate as soon as it is coupled up with the other containerised components such as the Air Turbine container and the Generator container.
As demand for electricity rises and falls one line or multiple lines can be switched off. Effectively the burners go into kindle mode, but are ready to fire immediately that the electrical demand increases.
Standard spares will be kept on-site to effect a speedy repair.
The Energy Centre is highly responsive and is able to switch between kindle mode and full firing in seconds. This maximises the flexinbility of the Power Production, minimises cost and provides maximum security for a constant supply of electricity.
It is a simple task to expand the Energy Centre from say 200MWe to 250MWe / 300MWe/ 350MWE/400MWE/450MWE/500MWe etc as every additional 50MWe Standard Power Modules adds 50MWe to the Power Stations output. This allows for planned expansion to occur with minimum fuss or delay. As they are all standard modules there will be no need for extra education or training, all Power Modules are identical.
Because the Energy Centre uses an air turbine, there is no need for any boilers or steam production. This massively reduces the overall costs. Increases safety for the workes as there are no high pressure steam hazards. Also it means that the power station acan be located anywhere on the planet, even in inhospitable landscapes such as deserts. Unlike conventional power stations which need to be sited near aa dam or river, the Energy Centre does not need to be sited near any water source and can be sited wherever you want. It could be sited half way up a mountain so long as you can get fuel to the Energy Centre. The ideal location for an Energy Centre is right next door to a coal mine, in the middle of a forest or in the middle of an area growing the bamboo.
