Doosan Portable Power NG225 and NG295 natural gas generators now have paralleling capabilities. Paralleling multiple natural gas units together is a means for avoiding downtime while still achieving acceptable emissions levels by consuming wellhead natural gas as a fuel source, the company says.
Paralleling generators share the load, and therefore should one machine shut down or need to be taken offline for scheduled maintenance, the other unit seamlessly takes on the full load, preventing any lost production time.
The generators utilize a factory-installed paralleling solution that is built into the machine design. The units include a new control panel and electronically controlled circuit breaker that ensures the machines effectively communicate, bringing the units into synchronization without risk of system failure or machine damage that can occur when paralleling conditions are not precisely met.
“The integrated control panel communicates digitally between the generators, providing each machine the information necessary to synchronize and equally share the load,” said Todd Howe, global generator products manager. “A standard generator is only able to monitor its own operating conditions and remain within the limits of its own operating conditions.”
