5335Flexible Fuel Operation

A sophisticated PECS design can allow a DG technology to operate on a wide range of fuels. It is the flexibility and adaptability enabled by digital control software that allows this to be possible without making significant changes to the system hardware. For example, an MT system can be designed to operate on fuels with Btu content ranging from as high as propane [~2500 Btu/SCF], to pipeline quality natural gas [~1000 Btu/SCF], to digester gas [~600 Btu/SCF], all the way down to landfill gas [~ 350-500 Btu/SCF]. Liquid fuels such as diesel, gasoline, and kerosene can also be readily accommodated with only minor changes required to the MT fuel system.
